Summary

Summary

Published in conjunction with the April 1999 exhibition, this catalogue presents the clothes, accessories, and library materials acquired by The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art during the 1990s. Six chapters (a history of fashion, the white dress, men of three centuries, the Americans, the contemporaries, and the library) provide a miniview of three centuries of clothing. The 113 color illustrations and illuminating text by Richard Martin (curator, The Costume Institute) display the Institute's commitment to presenting costume as a living art that interprets history, becomes part of the historical process, and inspires subsequent art. Oversize: 9.25x11.75". Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
