GAGE | Art History Tours
Faigin tours the home and studio of Joaquim Sorolla in Madrid, during the Gage Art Tour in Spain, 2011.
"I totally enjoyed every minute of the tour. It was like art history, general history, bible study, gossip and art all rolled into one… It was great to be seeing what they saw, it really helps in appreciating the work."
Since 1995, Faigin has been guiding art history tours through the art capitols of the United States and Europe. Faigin’s expertise in Western art, his in-depth understanding of the cultural currents at the times of the artists, and his biographical details of the artists, makes his fun and informative tours extremely popular with artists and art lovers alike.
Past Faigin-led international art tours have focused on single cities with rich cultural treasures, such as London, Paris, St. Petersburg, and Florence. Other tours have spanned a country or a region with artistic connections, such as:
