SO EXQUISITE // While exemplifying the genre, this coat, once belonging to the famous Romantic poet and playwright Alfred de Musset (1810–1857), has very moving associations: Musset, the archetypal bohemian artist of the 1830s, ultimately became one of the Second Empire's 'official' artists and a provider of commissioned plays to the Court; first worn when he was received into the French Academy in 1852, his coat is now a melancholic symbol of the embourgeoisement of an entire generation.
