« back to classes page
Few forms of art have enjoyed such international success and admiration as the modern suit of clothes.  Now two hundred years old, the form persists among women and men, on every continent, as a personal connection with the heroic traditions of classical antiquity.  It remains the dress of presidents and diplomats, newscasters and sports stars and millions of working people across the globe.  Yet its surprising story is little known.  What are the origins and inner meanings of this most personal work of modern art?  What are we remembering when we wear a suit of clothes?
