I was very bummed not to be allowed to take photographs at the exhibit. So here are some of the Museum's own photos.
|The Medici Room|
|The Fortuny Tent|
one of our favorite rooms
|Marie Claire de Cloy and child,|
after a painting by Van Dyck
|Detail on Elizabeth I's court dress|
|Isabelle de Borchgrave's atelier|
working on Eleanor of Toledo's gown
Everything you see is made of paper. (Even the mannequins were papier mache, it seems.) We were amazed at how she created "lace" using lens paper for a thin, filmy effect.
If you're in San Francisco, this is a must-see!
All photos from the Palace of the Legion of Honor website.
