Some exciting news at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Yesterday, Vogue.com had an article by Lynne Yaeger on the newest exhibition at the Met Museum that opened yesterday as well. The exhibition is called, “Death Becomes Her,” based off of the mourning era of the Victorian era. She discusses about the pieces she loaned out to the Met and the background of the exhibition.
This exhibition displays Queen Victoria’s mourning after Prince Albert’s death, and she wore black for the rest of her life. There are dresses from Queen Victoria’s wardrobe and other pieces from the era.
The Victorian exhibition will last until February 1, 2015.
