From February 26th to May 27th, the Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity exhibition will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum Art, New York. It looks at the role of fashion in the works of the Impressionists and their contemporaries.

“The period included the rise of department stores, illustrated fashion magazines and
ready-to-wear clothing, but also the couturier fashion house, most notably that of Charles Frederick Worth.” – New York Times

Major figure paintings are paired with period costumes, accessories, fashion plates, photographs, and popular prints highlighting the 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.
