'The Fashionable Bosom'

I'm not sure which I like more: the title of this print (A Nest for Puppies or the Fashionable Bosom) or its content.   Either way it's in my favourite file along with The breeches in the Fiera Maschereta.

The 1786 print critiques women's frivolous love of cute little lap dogs and expanding bustlines.  Why not combine the two?

Why not indeed.


  1. Oh, gosh, that's just what I needed to see on a hard day! So funny - thanks for sharing!

  2. Did....they make kitten version of this?

  3. Not only puppies and bust lines, that is not to even mention extraordinarily pouffy hats, some so tall as to require a building permit. Great blog. Why no recent posts? Alas, keep up the good (and pouffy) work from Erik at theoryofirony.

    1. Thanks Erik! I'm currently finishing up a degree, so I have high hopes to be much better with posts soon!
