The Metropolitan Museum of Art / Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity

Impressionism Fashion and Modernity


The Metropolitan Museum of Art

      Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity 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. With the rise of the department store, the advent of ready-made wear, and the proliferation of fashion magazines, those at the forefront of the avant-garde—from Manet, Monet, and Renoir to Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Zola—turned a fresh eye to contemporary dress, embracing la mode as the harbinger of la modernité.

     The novelty, vibrancy, and fleeting allure of the latest trends in fashion proved seductive for a generation of artists and writers who sought to give expression to the pulse of modern life in all its nuanced richness. Without rivaling the meticulous detail of society portraitists such as James Tissot or Alfred Stevens or the graphic flair of fashion plates, the Impressionists nonetheless engaged similar strategies in the making (and in the marketing) of their pictures of stylish men and women that sought to reflect the spirit of their age.

"Survey this vacant, violent fane;

Recount the relics torn that yet remain:"*

These desperate words of deep distress are addressed not only to Lord Byron whoclip_image001 feels guilty due to the profane deeds acted out by his compatriot Lord Elgin on the Goddess Athena. They are repeatedly whispered in the ears of every visitor to the Parthenon, her holy temple when you are up on the top of the Acropolis holy rock you cannot but feel the classical spirit and grandeur condensed in order to be expressed as the unaffected and simultaneously uniquely impressive Parthenon temple. We accept the Parthenon to be the ultimate symbol of human civilization to the extent that we assume that there can be a perpetual indispensable escort of History throughout its duration.
