They followed the paths of six masters from the last century: Matisse, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Picasso, visiting studios, sites, sources of inspiration, and museum collections from Provence to Paris. An exhibition of the resulting artists' books was installed in Lindell Library during February, documenting those incredible sensory experiences in words and images.
