Inhaltsangabe: For more than half of the nineteenth century, French artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) depicted the rapidly changing appearance of the fashionable woman with meticulous attention to detail and with rare perception and empathy. Working in a period that witnessed the development of a consumer society and the beginnings of couture, Ingres charted in his portraits how clothes were worn and what part they played in definitions of identity and status. This book explores for the first time the ways in which clothing, accessories, and fabrics define and display women in Ingres's portraits. With more than 150 illustrations that include the artist's portraits, fashion plates, portraits by contemporaries, and surviving items of costume, the book illuminates Ingres's work and its relation to the social and artistic discourse of his time.
Eminent dress historian Aileen Ribeiro analyzes in detail Ingres's attitudes, his skill in depicting clothing, and how he portrays the real and idealized woman in his paintings and drawings of the fashionable mainstream -- the grandes dames of elite society, the newly opulent bourgeoisie, English visitors to Italy, and family and friends. Ribeiro also devotes a section of the book to the part played by textiles and accessories in Ingres's images of bathers and odalisques.
