Dr. Mark White, Director of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, University of Oklahoma explores how American artists understood, interpreted, and portrayed Mediterranean culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. American tourism of Europe after the Civil War demonstrated increasing interest in southern Europe, the Holy Land, and much of northern Africa. American artists became interested in the aspects of nature and culture they believed to define the Mediterranean: its distinctive flora, the legacy of the Greco-Roman past and the influence of Christianity and Islam.
