How does style convey who we are?


To what extent is national identity conveyed through style? Can our clothes express who we are and who we hope to be?

Many of Goya’s portraits depict aristocratic men and women dressed in a Spanish style of dress that was new in its context and distinct from the prevailing French vogue. Professor Aileen Ribeiro of the Courtauld Institute of Art explores themes of costume and national identity in Spain, England, and France in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
