The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been a major fashion event for museums, but some historical details can be found in the museum’s “Versailles Tourists”.
The exhibition will be held on April 16. The jewelry in the newly opened exhibits is a three-piece costume manufacturer worn by Benjamin Franklin during his visit to Versailles. The new exhibition at the Fifth Avenue Museum also explores the elements of the 17th and 18th century visits to the Royal Residence. There have been 190 recent works from The Met, Versailles and 50 different banks, which have been exhibited at Tisch Gallery since July 29.
As the first ambassador of the United States, Franklin was received by Louis XVI in 1778 and won French military support. Franklin’s 1778-79 three-piece suit was borrowed from the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Met’s new show will also feature a 1775-85 French silk brocaded flannel robe that is believed to have been worn by the wife of Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, a well-known textile costume manufacturer in France, Marie Antoinette. (Marie Antoinette) and men’s formal French suits and ladies riding habits. The exhibition also includes furniture, tapestries, carpets, clothing, porcelain, sculptures and so on.
In order to convey a grand feeling, five galleries have aligned with the porch to create a long and dramatic vision and a sense of expectation for tourists. The set includes custom wallpapers to reflect the palatial elements such as marble inlays, pilasters, gold plated panels, wall hangings and mirrors. The purpose of museum patrons is to understand what visitors have encountered in the courtroom, their welcome and visits to the palace they received, and what impressions, gifts and souvenirs they brought home.
Met-Goers can also look at two virtual exhibitions – “Versailles Fashion: Her” and “Versailles Fashion: He.” Last year, Versailles and the Google Cultural Institute created the project through the We Wear Culture project. The virtual exhibition provided a decipherment for the fashion trends that first surfaced in the 1880s around Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.
This historic palace will be exhibited this fall, when the “Versailles” Canal + Creative Originale series made its debut in the United States at Ovation. The plan explores in depth the far-reaching influence of the Sun King as described by George Braddon.
