  • Painter's Honeymoon

    about 1864

    Frederic, Lord Leighton (English, 1830–1896)

    Description

    Love is equated with art in this romantic image which -- in its evocation of the past and its precise, controlled style -- epitomizes officially sanctioned academic practice in the late nineteenth century. Leighton, who was elected president of the Royal Academy in London in 1879, spent many years studying in Germany, France, and Italy. The composition and glowing color of Painter's Honeymoon reflect the influence of such sixteenth-century Venetian painters as Giorgione and Titian.

  • Woman and Mirror

    about 1910

    Cheri-Rousseau and Glauth (French, late 19th–early 20th century...

    Description

    The photographing of clothing fashions started in the fashion capital of Paris in the late nineteenth century. The earliest such images tended to be rather static portrayals of socialites and actresses. After 1900, the firm Cheri-Rousseau and Glauth specialized in creating photographic portraits and fashion plates for illustration in magazines such as "La Mode Practique." This charming and witty example shows a model admiring her own reflection, complete with her glamorous oversize ostrich hat, in a Victorian mirror.
