The Grand Tour art and artifacts refer to a time when the wealthy and upper class would send their young adult children on a "tour" of the ancient and classical world, Italy, Greece, other European centers of the Renaissance. This practice started in the late 1600's and went up till the late 19th, very early 1900's with the American Rich enjoying the cultural eduction of traveling and exploration. 
With these travels, in the case of the 17th-mid 19th only males would be allow to do this travel and abroad education. The 19th Americans allowed both male and female to enjoy this playground of the wealthy practice.
