Furnishing Beauty: Vanities of the Dressing Table
Objects and images from the permanent collection

Curated by Emily Stein ’19

Nissley Gallery

In this exhibition about the history and function of the dressing table, Emily Stein Franklin & Marshall College student (Art History, 2018) explores “the vanity” as both an object and a center of elaborate feminine social practices. On display from the Phillips Museum’s permanent collection will be objects depicting the motif of vanity. These objects-beautiful and functional-will address the social history of women across cultures. F&M Professor of Art & Art History Linda Aleci served as faculty adviser for Furnishing Beauty.

Curator’s talk by Emily Stein ’18: April 20, 4 p.m. Nissley Gallery
