Editorial Reviews

Review

“A welcome addition to the libraries of scholars and general readers alike. The catalogue’s clear prose is supplemented by sumptuous, full-color plates and extraordinarily high-resolution details, offering a worthy substitute for individuals who did not see the exhibition, or a handsome aide-mémoire for those who did” Susan M. Wager, Enfilade

“…the wealth of illustrations, which include many details of the exhibits, gives the publication a sumptuousness that parallels the experience of the exhibition” Hugh Belsey, The Burlington Magazine

“A book which demonstrates how dress history can illuminate and strengthen discussion of portraiture in galleries and museums.” “Exceptionally well illustrated” Valerie Cumming, Costume

The shows catalogue is “excellent” Los Angeles Times

“...a compelling read” Antiques and the Arts Weekly

A “beautifully illustrated catalogue” Antiques and Fine Arts

“As an authority on period costume, Ribeiro offers an essay that is rich in observations” Choice

About the Author
