Alexander McQueen Angels & Demons Collection Hieronymus Bosch Evening Dress

About

In his 2010 collection, Alexander McQueen celebrates art and medieval beauty in conjunction with religious iconography. In look #2 runway, McQueen was very much inspired by the artwork of Hieronymus Bosch in his painting "Gardens of Earthly Delights." He had his fabric translated into digital photographs of many of the Bosch paintings and segments of paintings to create the bodice of this dress. Jewel neck long sleeve bodice displaying Bosch hand loomed artwork in vibrant colors against a black ground. Woven gold beadwork enhances the richness, vibrancy and artistic beauty of this piece. Heavy black satin fabric cartridge pleating at hips. Dress has a zipper corset as well as additional zipper for entry. Slender sleeves with zippers. Fully lined. Very weighty substantial dress. Note: gloves not included. Very rare. Very collectible. Highly exhibitable. Wearable art by Alexander McQueen! From Vogue, Nov 1, 2016: "Fishlike creatures from the hell panel of Bosch’s famous triptych were the main motif on a short dress worn at Alexander McQueen’s posthumous fashion show. The Bosch reference was accompanied by other brocades of demons and figures, each a symbol of the handicraft of the Middle Ages McQueen loved." Size: 38; bust: to 32"; waist: 27"; hips: approx 35.5"; length: 36"; sleeve: 23"; shoulder: 16" Condition: new w/tag. Unworn. Excellent +++
