The Musée d'arts de Nantes will be opening a rather interesting exhibition this November. L'art de paraître au 18e siècle will investigate the history of costume and its representation during the age of the enlightenment.

The exhibition will bring together nearly 200 objects from the spheres of textiles and the fine arts, drawing on artworks loaned from the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, Musée des tissus de Lyon, Musée de la toile de Jouy, Musée de la Chemiserie et de l'Elegance Masculine, the Nationalmuseum of Stockholm, Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam, Victoria and Albert Museum of London, Versailles, Louvre, and regional museums in Ecouen, Nantes, Dijon, Tours and Orléans.

The show will run from 26th November 2021 till 6th March 2022.
