This lecture forms part of a series entitled "Antiquity After Antiquity" and is for first year Undergraduate History of Art students. It was delivered at the University of Oxford History of Art Department.

An Van Camp (Curator of Northern European Art at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology) explores the practice of Netherlandish artists travelling to Italy from the fifteenth until the seventeenth century. The lecture starts with an overview of the different kinds of Netherlandish artists and their reasons why they went to Italy (illustrated mainly by works on paper from the collections of the Ashmolean Museum). The second part of the lecture focuses on Jan Brueghel the Elder in particular and the different types of drawings he made in Italy after he returned to Flanders, some in preparation of print series.
