Dressing the Model: Museum Lecture with Gloria Groom

This lecture will explore why and how the artists of Mario Fortuny’s circle – Tissot, Gérôme, Alfred Stevens and other so-called “academic” painters – used fashion in their portraits and genre scenes. It will look also at how these artists intersected socially and professionally with the Impressionists Renoir, Monet, Degas and Manet in their embrace of fashion for wider artistic goals. Dr. Gloria Groom was the curator of the groundbreaking exhibition Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity (2012-13), which was put together by the Art Institute of Chicago.
