‘Modern Beauty: Art & Fashion in France’

POLA MUSEUM OF ART

March 19-Sept. 4

French fashion and cosmetics are the subjects of the Pola Art Foundation’s 20th-anniversary commemorative exhibition, which focuses on 19th- and 20th-century paintings from the museum’s own collection. This was an innovative era for fashion, one that saw improvements in textile manufacturing, garment distribution through department stores and increased interest in fashion magazines.

Edouard Manet’s “Woman on a Bench,” Claude Monet’s “La Promenade” and Jules Pascin’s “Princesse Ghika” are included in the exhibition, which will also feature collections of dresses, magazines, makeup utensils and other related objects.
