#Repost from @18th_century_cleophas. This elegant suit reflects the relative simplicity and informality of eighteenth-century British menswear, which came to influence fashionable dress throughout Europe in the latter half of the 1700s. The comparatively plain and practical style was seen as an alternative to the lavishly embroidered and ornately patterned suits of the French mode. Restraint in dress became linked with broader political values and the greater personal liberty that French philosophers, such as Voltaire (1694 –1778), associated with Great Britain. The slim silhouette fashionable in the 1770s has been emphasized through careful tailoring: gracefully curved coat fronts, narrow sleeves, and side seams that arch toward the center back, creating the impression of a tapered waistline. The precise tailoring anticipates the greater attention to nuances of cut in nineteenth-century fashions, while the suit’s vivid cyclamen hue demonstrates the lingering taste for brilliant color.Date: ca. 1770–80Culture: probably BritishMedium: wool, silk, cottonCredit Line: Purchase, Friends of The Costume Institute Gifts, 2013Accession Number: 2013.516a–chttps://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/623325?rpp=30&pg=7&ao=on&ft=2013&deptids=8&pos=201@metmuseum #18thcentury #18thcenturyfashion #museum #18thcenturycostume #voguemagazine #fashionmagazine #gentlmanstyle #allabout18thcentury #metropolitanmuseumofart

As a #mothersdaygift @jasondavidprice got me the #pilotcustom912 #waverlynib ! I had my heart set on the #pilotcustom823 but to me this one drove like a dream. Doesn’t scratch and doesn’t gush. Was just perfect. I’m looking forward to inking on Bristol board with this. Bonus on the limited edition #moncblancink #pearlpink #marylinmonroe

Commissions have kept me for the better part busy since @darksideofthecon and #pcaaca19 last several weeks. I did this one just for fun. Thinking about experimenting with certain color palettes. Apparently people at #artexponewyork like the other color studies I did, so why not? Can’t wait to show this one huge commission coming up. Tonight I am feeling blue though – still missing my mom. They say “this too shall pass”. Transient guests we are. #thecolorofspace #thecolorofmagic #stars #cosmos #astronomy #oilpainting #wip #worksinprogress #thatwhichisnotdeadcaneternallieandwithstrangeaeonsevendeathmaydie
