A faultless and lavishly illustrated catalogue

This fascinating and sumptuously illustrated book celebrates the world of high fashion in the Tudor and Stuart period. Bringing together works by the most fashionable artists of the time – including Holbein, van Dyck and Rembrandt – with rare surviving examples of costume, it unstitches and explores the truth (or otherwise) of the dress in art – and the art of dress.

This enchanting exploration of the social history and truth behind the painted image is a valuable addition to studies of Tudor and Stuart costume and an absorbing survey of the subject for all readers.

Anna Reynolds is Deputy Surveyor of The Queen's Pictures, Royal Collection Trust. Her other publications include Portrait of the Artist, Royal Childhood and A Royal Welcome
