Description

Used for centuries in the Far East, the elegant folding fan was adopted by 17th- century European women and remained popular for the next 200 years. This delicate fashion accessory was often decorated with flowers, courtship scenes, or illustrations of historic events. Our whimsical scarf collage shows details from a group of beautiful French fans ranging in date from 1680 to 1750.

Produced in cooperation with The Fan Museum, London; the Musée Lambinet, Versailles; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art
