Degas, Impressionism, & the Paris Millinery Trade

Legion of Honor

This exhibiton features 60 Impressionist paintings and pastels, including key works by Degas--many never before exhibited in the United States--as well as those by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, Mary Cassatt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and 40 exquisite examples of period hats. The exhibition will be the first to examine the height of the millinery trade in Paris, from around 1875 to 1914, as reflected in the work of the Impressionists. At this time there were around 1,000 milliners working in what was then considered the fashion capitol of the world.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Degas, Impressionism, & the Paris Millinery Trade :

This utterly delicious exhibition features 60 Impressionist paintings and pastels depicting the millinery trade in Paris from 1875 to 1914, when around 1,000 milliners were working in the city, then considered the fashion capital of the world. In addition to works by Degas, Renoir, Manet, Cassatt and Toulouse-Lautrec, among others, 40 exquisitely detailed period hats are also on view.
