Celebrate NYC Fashion Week with 'Sorolla and Fashion'

Spanish "painter of light" Joaquín Sorolla's 1910 portrait, "Clotilde in Evening Dress," is reproduced from Sorolla and Fashion, the Thyssen-Bornemisza's fascinating new exhibition catalog pairing Sorolla's paintings with exquisite contemporary photographs of period clothing. Eloy Martinez de la Pera writes, "Like the painter Constantin Guys, whom his friend Baudelaire described as the perfect flaneur, Sorolla was a keen spectator capable of capturing the fleeting beauty of the street, a shrewd observer aware of the changes in dress, 'if a fashion of the cut of a garment has been slightly modified, if bows and curls have been supplanted by cockades, if bavolets have been enlarged and chignons have dropped a fraction towards the nape of the neck, if waists have been raised and skirts have become fuller, be very sure that his eagle eye will already have spotted it from however great a distance.'"
