MUST SEE: Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity

I was lucky enough to see this exhibit in Paris when it was at the D'Orsay Museum in December of last year. The exhibit does a lovely job of connecting art with fashion. Curiously, the French title left out the word "Modernity".

The exhibit opened in New York City in February "Impressionism Fashion and Modernity" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until May 27, 2013. It will continue to the Art Institute of Chicago on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, where it will be until Sunday, September 22, 2013.

There are wonderful examples of period dress along with the fantastic impressionist artwork. The final exhibit room in Paris re-created a park with a soundtrack of songbirds, grass-green carpeting and park benches interspersed with the paintings and fashion...such fun!
