Dressed for the 18th Century

Nancy Bryant's lecture, "Dressed for the 18th Century" was the final presentation in this year's Benton Lecture series.

She started her "reverse strip tease" in a chemise and gradually added all the pieces--corset, petticoat, hoops, etc--that upper class women in Europe and America wore in the 18th century. She donned replica jewelry, shoes and wig to complete the outfit.

Eighty people attended the lecture.
