Description

By Jane Adlin, with contributions by Lori Zabar

The Metropolitan Museum's vast collections include a seemingly infinite variety of objects, some more familiar than others. Among these is the dressing table, or vanity; to which this issue of the Bulletin is dedicated. This volume and the exhibition it accompanies, "Vanities: Art of the Dressing Table," provide an overview of the origins and development of the dressing table from antiquity to the present day. What emerges is a refreshing and surprising cross section of works from the Museum's curatorial departments, including an Egyptian storage box, a nineteenth-century Japanese cosmetics stand, and a streamlined Jazz Age vanity by noted American designer Norman Bel Geddes, to name just a few.

National Associate Members and Members at the $100 Level and above will be receiving the Fall 2013 Bulletin, Vanities: Art of the Dressing Table, in the mail as a benefit of Membership.

48 pages, full-color illustrations throughout. 8 1/2'' x 11''. Paper.
