Musée du Bas-Saint-Laurent


A woman wearing a long white dress with a high neckline; she is quite petite.

Gladys [Meredith?] in Saint-Patrice (Rivière-du-Loup), 1908.

Private coll.(Brydon Gombay).

This woman is wearing a gorgeous dress. Though her neck is covered (how decent!), her sleeves are rolled up, giving her the look of a woman in action! Her very fine waistline shows how her body has been “re-worked” to meet the period’s ideal.
