TREASURES FROM THE BENAKI MUSEUM

Greek Costumes from the 18th and 19th Centuries


In 2019, a year that Fragonard has devoted to Greece, the Musée Provençal du Costume et du Bijou is hosting a first-ever exhibition of Greek costumes from the mid-18th to the late 19th centuries. This extraordinary event is being presented in partnership with the Benaki Museum of Athens.

Greek costumes spanning a period of more than 150 years will be on show, a true first in Provence. Because Greece played such a central role in trade between East and West, it boasts an unrivaled diversity of global influences in its culture. More than twenty different areas are represented. Together they form a journey across all of Greece, from the farthest islands to the rugged mountains of Macedonia and Thrace, passing through the verdant landscape of Attica on the way: a fascinating crossing of the Meditteranean, a world that Fragonard cherishes.
