Not on view

This open robe, lacking petticoat, in spice brown damask reveals both the wide circumstance of the 1730s style, just before the flattening out that occurred at mid-century, and the hedonism of extraordinary damask, even when it's monochromatic. The luxury of this textile art alone is enough to warrant the interest in and satisfaction taken from this open robe.
