Our Curator, Kevin Jones, was at The Huntington Library, Art Collection, and Botanical Gardens today speaking to in-house docents about his favorite subjects: late-19th century and early-20th century fashion. His presentation was titled Dress in Diamonds: American Princesses and Gilded Age Fashion. Did you know our curators are available for private talks and presentations? Contact the museum to learn more!
