An exploration of the opulence and splendour found in both the furniture and fashions of eighteenth century France. The book derives from the exhibition of the same name hosted at the MET in 2004. The text explores art, fashion and design, and their relationship with the social mores of the period. Reproductions of contemporary paintings sit alongside photographs of the museum's costumes staged in the French period rooms of The Wrightsman Galleries.
