Paris: The Thrill of the Modern

In the May 9 issue, Anka Muhlstein writes, “Impressionism, if viewed in fashion terms, becomes a runway presentation of evening gowns, silky, translucent peignoirs, dresses to be worn in the countryside, beribboned children’s outfits, and beautifully cut men’s suits. Still, what makes this exhibition so interesting is less the intersection of art with fashion than the concept of the modernity of art as it was understood by the artists of the last half of the nineteenth century.”

The Met is open Tuesday-Thursday from 9:30 AM-5:30 PM, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 AM-9 PM, and Sunday from 9:30 AM-9 PM.
