Angela has an Armand Marseille bisque head with blonde hair and blue eyes. She is wearing a gold tissue cloth evening gown with an overskirt of green net embroidered in gold and silver. Over this she wears a velvet and georgette crepe cape trimmed in fur. She also wears a georgette and velvet strip cap (not visible in photo) and gold shoes. As day dresses grew progressively shorter during the decade, evening attire stayed long, or occasionally overlaid a shorter skirt with a longer gauzy or lacey overskirt that was full-length. In the 1920s, French couturier Coco Chanel revolutionized the fashion industry by creating...

Anne has a Simon Halberg bisque head with a yak hair wig (see previous descriptions of wigs with 1728 - Manuela and 1755 - Francoise) and brown eyes. She wears a colonial dress of purple and print silk (print indicates that the pattern was hand-printed with wooden blocks on the silk rather than woven into it). This was probably a walking dress as they tended to be deliberately shorter. The drawn-up portion of the skirt is known as a polonaise, a mode that resembled a milkmaids tucked up skirts and was popularized by Marie Antoinette when she pretended she was a "peasant" tending her sheep in her...

Annie has an Armand Marseille bisque head with blond hair and blue eyes. She is dressed like the businesswoman she was in a tailored rose wool suit with a black satin lined bolero jacket, white tailored shirtwaist, and full skirt trimmed in black embroidery. Atop her head, she wears a natural straw tailored sailor hat trimmed with black ribbon and beneath her skirt black hose and shoes. As the move to female emancipation intensified, the waistline was raised slightly above its natural placement and the s-shape abandoned. Instead, women now wore the emancipation or liberty bodice which offered them the...

Born in Liverpool, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait (1819-1905) served as an assistant to George Catlin when Catlin brought his famous American Indian gallery to England and Paris. Thus inspired, Tait immigrated to the United States where, despite never traveling farther west than Chicago, he became famous as a genre painter of frontier life. In Arguing the Point he celebrates the American democracy at work on the forefront of civilization. A hunter/trapper and a farmer debate the political issues raised in a probably already outdated newspaper from back east as the farmers daughter listens on, perhaps hoping to have her own chance...
