i was recently clued into a little known secret (or perhaps it’s well known and i’m simply late to the party) — did you know you can explore archives upon archives from the Met Museum right from your very own computer?

now yes, in person is clearly the more preferred option…hello NYC…but exploring the digital archives isn’t an all too shabby second place option.

my first archive: house of dior.

chambord, 1954.

diorama, 1951.

junon, 1950.

tour de valse, 1957.

these are but a few drops in the bucket. should you care to explore more you can see the full collection here and check out the Met’s full archives here.
