PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade brings to the Legion of Honor an exploration of the millinery trade in its heyday as reflected in the work of Impressionist artists, most notably Edgar Degas (French, 1834–1917). This groundbreaking exhibition focuses particularly on millinery in Paris, the fashion capital of the world in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and is the first to explore the Impressionists’ remarkably rich visual imagery around this popular accessory of contemporary urban life. Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade features key paintings, related preparatory drawings, and pastels by Degas and his contemporaries, including Mary Cassatt, Édouard Manet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Berthe Morisot, among others. It also includes a wide range of hats like those depicted in the Impressionist works to highlight their beauty and intricacy and to emphasize the intriguing connections between the two artistic endeavors. Contains 30 over-sized postcards.
