FRANCE – 18TH CENTURY. TRADITIONAL COSTUMES AND INDOOR FURNISHING, 1794.
The costumes of this period, especially in the province where this family picture painted by Jacques Maurin from Perpignan was painted, did not differ much from those of the monarchy. They still wore wigs, a waistcoat, only without shots, a skirt, whose shots were cut fish-tail-like since 1789, with two wide lapels decorated with buttons.
Skirt and waistcoat were of different colours. The shoes were no longer decorated with gold or silver buckles, but with rosettes or simple ribbons.
The women wear the costume of the Spanish Catalonia, which Perpignan is close to.
