Impressionism and Fashion at the Musée d'Orsay

From 25 September 2012 to 20 January 2013

Ways of dressing in the 19th century

The impressionist movement was embodied by a desire to represent the truths of everyday life. For some, this meant capturing the gifts of nature at every moment of the day. For others, this meant depicting the banalities of modern life.

It is the latter that a new exhibit presented by the Musée d'Orsay seeks to capture. The exhibit is called "Impressionism and Fashion," and it is made up of hundreds of impressionist works from the 19th century. By discovering these works, visitors can also discover the working class trends and ways of dressing during this era.

In the spirit of impressionism, the Musée d'Orsay concentrates on typical men and women living out regular lives. High-fashion styles are therefore nowhere to be found. Instead, the artists included in this exhibition show hardworking individuals in their natural attire. Often, these individuals are also painted in their usual working or living environments.

From Manet to Degas, "Impressionism and Fashion" helps spectators to have a better understanding of what it was like to live in the 19th century. They can also understand how these ways of living were transformed, especially between the years of 1860 and 1880. Visitors should therefore pay close attention to the works created during this period of time in order to witness this evolution.
