GOTHIC TO GOTH: ROMANTIC ERA FASHION AND ITS LEGACY. Lynne Zacek Bassett. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, 2016. Published in association with University Press of New England, Lebanon. 100 pp. with 80 col. ills. 28 x 23 cm. ISBN 9780918333285 In English.
Publisher's description: The Romantic movement rejected Enlightenment reason, and embraced instead the imagination and the unknown. Costume of the early nineteenth century integrates the elements of history, imagination, religion, and even landscape central to the Romantic sensibility. This exhibition catalogue from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art examines these influences on women's clothing from 1810 1860, alongside fine and decorative arts of the period and how Romanticism forms the roots of today's Goth and Steampunk fashion movements. The audience for this book includes academics, students, and the general public interested in 19th-century literature, art, history, fashion, and material culture. Followers of the current Goth and Steampunk movements will also be interested.
