Figures à la Mode, Romeyn de Hooghe, 1670 - 1685

etching, h 166mm × w 123mm More details

From the middle of the 17th century fashionable men wore ‘rhinegraves’, extremely full breeches decorated with an ‘apron’ of braids under long fitted coats. The long curly hair, high-heeled shoes, large bands and profusion of buttons and bows amazed many contemporaries. The men in this series by De Hooghe almost seem to succumb to their garments.
