Monday Morning Muse: Women of Fashion

1976-70

This lovely watercolor by French artist Jules David joined the collection in 1976. The details of the women’s dress are exquisite, from their ornately flowered hats, to the flourishes of their fitted dresses, to the peeking toes of their pointed shoes.
