Comment: There are certain pieces here on consignment that I say “Wow” every time I look at them. That response can be for a variety of reasons but in this case it’s that staggering amount of detail as it’s played off by light and shadow. The clothes may seem dated except to a certain appraiser on Antiques Roadshow, but that’s rather beside the point. This is a masterpiece of the fashion advertising genre by one of its greatest practitioners of the last quarter of the 20th century.
