  • Dressing gown, ca. 1930
    Mariano Fortuny (Spanish, 1871–1949)
    Stenciled rose silk

    Gift of Courtlandt Palmer, 1950 (C.I.50.44)

    With slashed sleeves extending far beyond the length of the arm like a mandarin's robes, Fortuny's wraps, capes, and gowns are in the realm of high fantasy. Primary sign or reference—or what seems to be specific location—is established by the stenciling that suggests the kufic and corded embroideries of North African djellabahs.
