Video: The Met’s Fashion, Impressionism and Modernity reviewed

TBNYC visits The Met’s special exhibit “Fashion, Impressionism and Modernity” which paralleled fashion and the works of popular impressionist artists such as Manet, Renoir, Baudelaire and many more.

Impressionist painters began to focused more on full length portraits than facial features, leading these paintings to be some of the first fashion illustrations. What is unique about this exhibit is that paintings are displayed with the actual clothes and accessories worn in the paintings. A very unique appearance is also made by three Charles Frederick Worth pieces.

Produced by L.O. Monty and Brittany Wilson, music by The Dave Trichter Quoitient.
