Canvas & Silk: Historic Fashion from Madrid's Museo del Traje
Sep 19, 2021 - Jan 09, 2022
This exhibition of Spanish jewelry, shoes, accessories, and ensembles for men, women, and children, marks the first major collaboration between the Museo del Traje (Spanish National Museum for Fashion) and an American museum. When viewed alongside Meadows’s paintings from the Enlightenment to the modern era, the pairings not only tell the story of how fashion trends in Spain changed over five hundred years, but also reveal how elements of a country’s history – such as its involvement with global trade or the formation of a national identity – are reflected in its dress.
