    DescriptionDuring the reigns of Louis XV (1723-74) and Louis XVI (1774-92), fashion and furniture were not meant simply to be beautiful but were also intended to arouse, attract, and seduce. Published in response to the critically acclaimed and hugely popular exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum in the fall of 2004, Dangerous Liaisons will focus on fashion and its interplay with the art, furniture, and decorative arts of eighteenth-century France. Featuring beautiful colour photographs of the exhibition's installation, details of the garments, and supplementary historical material, the book demonstrates how the extravagant clothing of the period reiterated the splendour of Rococo and Neoclassical interiors. Either as a souvenir of the Museum's exhibition or as a fascinating survey of eighteenth-century French fashion, decorative arts, history, and culture, Dangerous Liaisons is an essential book to own.
