Art//Archives Sneak Peek: 1939!

This week, for Art//Archives Visual Research Hours, we’ll be featuring periodicals from the year 1939, with a focus on style and fashion.

1939 brought the start of the Second World War, the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco, and the publication of The Grapes of Wrath.

It was a year when stylish transportation looked like this:

When wool jackets were cool and Dobermans looked almost exactly like they do today:

When women dressed impeccably, for television or for the (table) tennis court:

And when the “it girls” in Paris were, apparently, pursuing this new aesthetic:
