Identifying designs inspired by the period dress of the 17 th and 18 th centuries [Baroque and Rococo] Work to be presented in class on September 7, 2011 Individual work Study the dress of Baroque and Rococo: o You can use textbooks, handouts, class slides, library materials, etc. printed matter o You can also use online searches; use these with great caution. Many online pictures of what appear to be real garments are actually reproductions of costumes for theater productions and may not be entirely accurate. Generally, pictures of paintings of the period are good sources. The following site has a compiled list of online resources but, again, use them with caution: http://thecostumersmanifesto.com/index.php?title=Costume_History_Sorted_by_E ra o You can look for museums that have costume collections and have searchable databases with good pictures. As you may have notices from the lecture slides, I have used examples from the Victoria & Albert museum http://collections.vam.ac.uk/search/
