Format: Hardcover
A wealth of information, beautifully illustrated and a big heavy tomb.
It'll take some reading but as a reference book, at first glance it appears to be of great value to me as an artist and as a fashion design manual.
The construction of garments appears to be detailed with cut, seams, darts, fastenings, gathers and frills carefully illustrated.

Love it! 26 Feb. 2013
By Judy M. Iwen - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Love the color pictures of all the lovely ladies. I wish women would dress like that again. They were works of art and are. Most people only think of the painting of Whistler's Mother and don't realize he painted pictures of many other women. He was very interested in fashion and interior design too. Great book.

Beautiful color fashion magazine of the nineteenth century 25 Aug. 2009
By Y. Park - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift from my art teacher for my high-school graduation. I only knew a few works of Whistler then, like Arrangement in Grey and Black: The Artist's Mother--which is an amazing piece of art, but not as sensual and beautiful as other portraits that are abound in this volume.
As a teenager I adored this book, which discusses the role of painted portrait for socialites of the time, and speaks the fashion language of cloth, hem and colors for each portrait.
