This special tour will take you on a detailed exploration of the many connections illustrated by the Hearthstone Museum Cloth and Canvas exhibit. This exhibit features pieces from Hearthstone’s exquisite historic clothing collection and pairs them with museum-quality reproductions of famous works of Impressionist art to highlight Hearthstone as a superb clothing museum while also reveling in how a few flecks of paint can become a dress, a hat, or a glove. We’ll discuss this interplay of period clothing and its representation in Impressionist art, and the gilded age nouveau riche and their impact on taste and style. We will also feature original artworks in the Hearthstone collection. Limited to 12 guests per tour.
