Richard Bridgens and the Grand Tour

5144lMgEl-L-300x194 Author's Blog Today on A Covent Garden Gilflurt’s Guide to Life I’m discussing the Grand Tour (the rite of passage for upper calls young men throughout the 18th and 19th centuries) and artists associated with it, particularly Richard Bridgens whose etchings in Sketches Illustrative of the Manners and Costumes of France, Switzerland, and Italy give us an insight into the clothing and customs of early 19th century Europe.  The graphic at the top is one of them.

Thanks to Madam Gilflurt for hosting me. Link to it by clicking above or here.
