Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900

A fascinating exhibit is going on right now at the Victoria & Albert Museum (one of my favorite museums in the world) The concepts introduced are relevant to other artistic movements as well... the obsession with 'Red Hair' for example can be picked up in Degas' series of women at their toilette.
