In Dressed as in a Painting, Kimberly Wahl provides a lucid
exploration of the interrelations between fashion, art, and
Aestheticism during the latter half of the nineteenth century.
Although artistic forms of dress have been the subject of short
studies before, no book has focused exclusively on Aesthetic dress
and its various expressions in the visual cultures of Victorian
Britain. More important, no book has attempted to investigate the
gap between the material facts of artistic clothing as it was
embodied on the wearer, and its presence as an idealized sartorial
trope in the visual and textual print culture of the period.
