POWDER AND PATCHES: PORCELAIN FOR THE BOUDOIR IN 18TH-CENTURY EUROPE
June 6 to September 5, 2016
111 Queen`s Park
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
In the lobby display case.
Richly furnished and infused with exotic scents, the lady’s boudoir held one of the rituals that most eloquently typified eighteenth-century refinement: the toilette. The toilette involved the dressing and accessorizing of hair and wigs, the application of make-up and patches, and the final stages of dressing, all in the company of friends, family members, and servants. Punctuated with light meals, conversation, and other activities, the toilette unfolded over several hours every morning. The lady of fashion rarely appeared in public before noon.
This display visualizes the refined atmosphere of the boudoir along with the beauty and social rituals of the toilette. Objects are both functional and decorative, and highlight the importance of porcelain in the consumption of some of the most fashionable and luxurious products of the time, including cosmetics, perfume, and snuff.
ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM DAWN OF LIFE PREVIEW
until opening of Dawn of Life exhibit in 2017
Royal Ontario Museum, 100 Queen`s Park
In anticipation of the new Dawn of Life gallery, which will be home to the ROM’s world renowned collection of Burgess Shale specimens, the Museum will have a special display of spectacular pieces that will introduce how the new gallery will present, interpret, and explain fossil life.
These specimens will give a sneak peek into the remarkable history of life on Earth before the dinosaurs, and how the Earth has changed drastically over time. Some of the pieces identified have been in the ROM’s vaults for decades, or were acquired specifically for the new Dawn of Life gallery, and will be a unique experience for visitors.
