At the Milliners, Impressionist painters captured the latest french fashions of the bourgeoise. Hats, throughout the the 19th and 20th centuries have been identity and social markers. In the photographs of Contessa Gallery, laborers wear newsboy caps, in a Questroyal painting, the artist glamorizes traditional Italian hats: the styles abound. Paintings and other mediums instantly date their subjects through style which designers are rethinking and re-appropriating for modern times.
