The Museums collection includes a silk evening dress from Elsa Schiaparellis (Italian, 18901973) summer 1937 collection with a lively print featuring a wide array of butterfly types and colors. The print was inspired by Surrealist artists such as Salvador Dal, Max Ernst, and Man Ray, with whom Schiaparelli shared many views. This artful gown is the source for our butterfly-bedecked scarf.

Art History

The butterfly was the Surrealist symbol for change, particularly from ugly to beautiful. Just as the caterpillar morphs into the brilliant butterfly, Elsa Schiaparellis (Italian, 18901973) designs could transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
