There are so many fashion exhibitions in museums at the moment that one is hard pressed to mention them all, let alone visit them. But this exhibition looks delightful and I shall have to regret not being able to fly over to the US to enjoy it.
This exhibition presents a revealing look at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists and their contemporaries. Some eighty major figure paintings, seen in concert with period costumes, accessories, fashion plates, photographs, and popular prints, highlight the vital relationship between fashion and art during the pivotal years, from the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s, when Paris emerged as the style capital of the world.
