The Art of Dress in Literature, and Life

20 September – 4 October 2018

From shimmering silks and sumptuous satins, glittering gold brocade to sheer muslin gowns, artists through the ages have revelled in depicting details of dress. Whether clinging to every contour or concealing the shape of the wearer, clothing can create dynamism and drama – stories that contemporaries could read. Through the words of key dramatists and writers, and portraits in paint and print, this course will investigate how character can be created through clothing.
