The Impressionists' Passion for Fashion Lecture by Gloria Groom

Lecture by Gloria Groom, Chair of European Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago.

By 1860, Paris was the style capital--as well as art capital--of the world. The fashion industry was booming. Off-the-rack clothing made new styles available to vast numbers of men and women, the department store was on the rise, and fashion magazines flew off the shelves. Impressionists and other modern artists were fascinated by the innovative, changeable qualities of the new fashion industry. For Manet, Monet, Renoir, and others, fashion was synonymous with modernity and whether they were fashioning the model or inspired by their models  fashions, la mode played a key role in the development of their art.
