#Christie’s exhibition explores the art historical influences behind Dolce&Gabbana’s Alta Moda, Alta Gioielleria and Alta Sartoria collections. Established by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in 1985, Italian fashion brand Dolce&Gabbana is celebrated for its theatrical designs that incorporate luxurious fabrics, opulent embellishments and hand finishes. ‘Dolce&Gabbana has always drawn on culture, costume and art history for their designs,’ comments Flavia Lefebvre D’Ovidio, Old Masters Paintings specialist at Christie’s in London. ‘They pay homage to the past, whilst transmitting a sense of glamour, richness and opulence.’ Art Adorned (22 November to 3 December 2019) is a new exhibition at Christie’s in London that explores the enduring influence of the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo movements on Dolce&Gabbana’s Alta Moda, Alta Gioielleria and Alta Sartoria collections, their homage to luxury and Italian craftsmanship.
Just returned from #NYC and stood before Claude #Monet‘s “Meules” (1890) in the showroom at Sotheby’s days before last night’s record breaking price of $111 Million Monet. (click on image to read more) This work of Monet’s is just as extraordinary on image here as it is in person. (L. Camargo)
