Description

This superbly illustrated book provides a fascinating insight into the costumes and fabrics of the Tudor and Stuart age. Detailing both the leading fashions of the day and the appeal to painters of timeless classical dress, this book considers both those who led taste and the influence of international fashions of the period. Drawing not only on portraits, but also on contemporary accounts, literary references and examples of garments - which are considered both in terms of their visual qualities and their technical construction - this publication provides a new and valuable examination of Tudor and Stuart costume and the ways in which artists have represented fabrics in paint.
