Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity 2/26 - 5/27

Women with Parasol - one of my favorite paintings.
Fashion and the Impressionism movement go hand in hand --  what with artists paying astute attention to how their subjects moves and particularly how their clothing moves before creating a more dreamlike vision.

The Metropolitan Museum opened up the exhibit to the public yesterday - "Impression, Fashion and Modernity."  They pair various artworks with illustrations and actual pieces to examine how fashion greatly influences art and vice vera.  Already receiving good reviews, this is an event not to miss out.

Something to check out on a rainy day like today.
