MET Museum Deaccession 18th Century French Robe~Polychrome Striped Silk Taffeta


Robe à la polonaise with Matching Petticoat: ca. 1780, French, striped silk taffeta. "The robe à la polonaise came to popularity in the 1770s. The skirt was held up by cords and divided into three panels of full drapes over the underskirt. In the late 18th century, following the trend toward simple clothing except for court dress, women's costumes also became more casual."

Madame de Pompadour (1721–1764) Jean-Baptiste Pigalle  (French, 1714–1785) White marble  bust completed in 1751 when Madame de Pompadour was twenty-seven years old. It was probably meant for her residence château de Bellevue, which was finished the same year. She chose the stone for the bust, a hard and brittle marble, with the intention of promoting the use of local French materials. This piece was the first to be made of the white marble from the newly discovered quarry of Sost in the French Pyrenees.
