Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade examines the height of the millinery trade in Paris, from around 1875 to 1914, as reflected in the work of the Impressionists. This special event begins with a guided tour of the exhibit, at the Legion of Honor, led by exhibition and catalogue contributor, Laura Camerlengo, Assistant Curator of Costume and Textile Arts. At the turn of the twentieth century, there were around 1,000 milliners working in Paris, and their work and resulting creations enthralled Edgar Degas (French, 1834 – 1917). The exhibition features 60 paintings and pastels by Degas and his fellow Impressionists, and 40 exquisite contemporary hats and bonnets, including many from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s collection. After a tour, guests will enjoy a catered luncheon in the Legion of Honor Café. The day concludes with free time to explore the Museum’s galleries.
