Including work by American and Mexican artists from The Baker Museum’s permanent collection, Dressed and Undressed presents 20th century representations of the female form as well as the clothing, shoes and accessories that adorn it. This exhibition includes paintings, drawings and prints that celebrate the art of fashion and the diverse ways to represent female beauty. A complement to Yves Saint Laurent + Halston: Fashioning the ‘70s, this exhibition features a variety of pictorial styles. The selection invites the viewer to identify the correspondences between the exquisite designs by Saint-Laurent and Halston displayed in the main gallery and the fascinating works on view here.
