Add to Calendar 26-02-2013 27-05-2013 15 Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity will present 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, will 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, Mallarme, and Zola -- turned a fresh eye to contemporary dress, embracing la mode as the harbinger of la modernite. 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 Tissot or 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. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=127017 Metropolitan Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY

Mary Cassatt - In the LogeThe row of buttons on the tan kid gloves, the black ruffle edging the sleeve, the shimmering pearl earring, the black chapeau tilted just so: the titian-haired woman peering intently through her opera glasses in Mary Cassatt’s 1878 oil In the Loge is as much a fashion plate as a theater devotee. For Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has gathered some 80 Impressionist canvases, along with clothing, accessories, photographs, and prints, to illustrate how Cassatt, Monet, Manet, Renoir and the other painters in their circle used the latest style of dress as analogs to their new style of painting. The show includes iconic, rarely loaned masterpieces from museums in Boston (the Cassatt), Chicago (the spectacular Paris Street; Rainy Day), and Paris (Monet’s Luncheon on the Grass), among others. - Sylviane Gold
