Fashion Culture: Fashion in European Art: Dress and Identity, Politics and the Body, 1775-1925
March 7, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FIT Assistant Professor Justine De Young will discuss her new book, Fashion in European Art, with MFIT Director Valerie Steele. Illustrated with a lavish array of images, their conversation will range over topics such as fashion, art, and politics; the controversy surrounding mannequins and monkeys; and sexual identity in men’s portraiture. You will never look at paintings like Seurat’s A Sunday on La Grande Jatte the same way again. A book signing will follow the conversation.
