"Canvas and Silk: Historic Fashion from Madrid’s Museo del Traje"
See a major exhibition of Spanish dress and fashion that pairs approximately 40 paintings from the Meadows' collection with historic dress and accessories from the Museo del Traje (Spanish National Museum for Fashion) in Madrid. Loans include jewelry, shoes, accessories, and ensembles for men, women, and children. The combined installation of objects and images from the Age of Enlightenment to the modern era not only tell the story of how fashion trends in Spain changed over 500 years, but also reveal how elements of a country’s history—such as its involvement with global trade or the formation of a national identity—are reflected in its dress.
