Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

For more than one hundred years, the kimono has been a motif in American art and popular culture. The Kimono Inspiration — originally published as the catalog for the exhibition at the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. — explores the use and meaning of the kimono in America and traces the transformation of this quintessential Japanese garment from its ethnic origins, through its many appearances in fine art, costume, and high fashion, to its role in the contemporary art-to-wear movement.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-189) and index.
