The Art of Fashion | Author: Michal Goldschmidt

A captivating visual exploration of fashion and modern style as seen through the eyes of artists across the globe.

Since the emergence of the seasonal fashion industry in the nineteenth century, Western artists have been engaging with fashion's impact, meaning and forms in their artwork. In portraits, the clothes that sitters wear are often revelatory about their wider context or identity. But as time has passed, sartorial details artists used to provide visual praise or condemnation of their subjects have lost their legibility.

Exploring the variety of ways in which artists have engaged with such possibilities over the last two hundred years, this book examines the intricate relationship between the history of modern art and fashion, revealing the many ways modern fashion has featured within art and the ways art has, in fact, become fashion.
