Dressing the Part: Art and Fashion in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries

Robert Crumb
Robert Crumb
(American, b. 1943)
Gilbreath-McLorn Museum Fund

A collaboration between the Museum of Art and Archaeology and the Missouri Historic Clothing and Textiles Collection (University of Missouri-Columbia), this exhibit explores the exciting world of fashion in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. When artists incorporate fashion into their artworks, they communicate certain messages about gender, race and class to the spectator. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to consider the social, political, cultural and economic factors that have affected fashion design in Europe and America over the last two centuries. Viewers will have the opportunity to see paintings, drawings and prints by such artists as Honoré Daumier, Reginald Marsh and Robert Crumb displayed side by side with actual examples of clothing from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
