Constantin Guys, Parisian women in extravagant costumes


Two sisters. Guys' best sketches are exceptionally vivid, I think, and give a better impression of how wearers of these curious costumes deported themselves than any photograph could do.



Walking in the street with muffs.


Big furry muff.


Promeneuses. A strong wrist is required.


A girl with her chaperone.


Crinolines!


A self-confident grisette with a natty yellow apron.


Leaving the opera.


All dressed up for a reception at court.
