Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

JCDC AW1112 Ingres

Man Ray’s photographic tribute to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, « Ingres’s Violin / Le Violon d’Ingres », was referenced in the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Show, titled « Woman / Ray ».

Some Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres-inspired collections : BodyAmr Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this collection paid homage to Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s « The Big Odalisque / La Grande Odalisque » painting), Elisabeth de Senneville Spring/Summer 1989 (this collection featured printed images which reproduced Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s « The Turkish Bath / Le Bain turc » work), Maryam Keyhani Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (for this collection, which honored Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s color palette, Maryam Keyhani started sketching on top of the neoclassical painter’s portraits), Pleats Please by Issey Miyake Autumn/Winter 1996-1997 (the N° 1 « Guest Artist Series », in collaboration with Yasumasa Morimura, featured prints that were based on Yasumasa Morimura’s photographs, which were originally influenced by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s  « Odalisque » artwork).
