Souvenirs of the Grand Tour In the 18th century, young and privileged Englishmen embarked on an experience called the Grand Tour. They traveled Europe where they visited cherished ruins of the ancient world with the purpose of enriching their lives with language, culture, art and architecture. Mementos and trophies were collected along the way to remind them of their adventures and explorations. Property from the Collection of Joseph Klein (1899-1987), New York, New York Mr. Joseph Klein sought out and acquired these souvenirs as part of his vast collecting interest. Said to have collected in the manner of a 18th century connoisseur, his overall collection showcased his diverse array of artifacts acquired over a period of 45 years and included the art of ancient China, Egypt, Persia, Greece and Rome.
