About

Fine silks, dazzling damasks, and brilliant brocades: these fine fabrics ensured that 18th-century European fashion was a feast for the senses.

Compton Verney Curator, Jane Simpkiss, explores the importance of fashion in 18th-century Naples and how it shaped the art produced in this period. This is the first in a series of lectures with artists and experts focusing on a particular sense and highlighting key themes and ideas explored in Sensing Naples.
