The way the show is organized in the Legion of Honor galleries, it’s possible to tour the paintings, or the hats or both at once. The paintings, pastels, drawings and posters feature hats much like the ones arranged in plexiglass cases. At the same time, the hats on display seem to leap out of the artwork into the present. The paintings by Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mary Cassatt and other artists may not be their best-known works. But it was Degas’ big canvas “The Milliners” (circa 1898) that inspired the show, after it was purchased by the Saint Louis Art Museum for $10 million crochet ballet slippers.
All of the artwork, of course, features men and women wearing hats, or hats on display, and highlights include paintings from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago and the J. Paul Getty Museum. The hats are from museums, too, although they must spend years in the equivalent of climate-controlled hatboxes before they are plucked out for exhibits. Several are from the Fine Arts Museums’ own collection in San Francisco. Others are from Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and, of course, Paris crochet ballet slippers.
Touring the exhibit in the Legion’s downstairs galleries is like visiting a lost world: Who thinks of hats anymore? For men, at least young men, straw hats that used to be called “porkpies” are common, and for women, the African-American community has retained a stylish millinery presence. But wearing a hat is no longer a requirement when anyone leaves the house — as they were in the exhibit’s era. There is plenty to learn about hat-making in France from about 1875 to 1914, when the outbreak of World War I upset both fashion and manufacturing crochet ballet slippers. It was an era when newly invented department stories like Galeries Lafayette made hats more accessible to an expanding middle class..
Here, to begin, are bonnets and modest straw hats and then wide-brimmed hats arrayed with masses of artificial flowers in the 1890s. The flowers, we learn, were made of silk or cotton, stiffened with flour or gelatin, the petals dyed, hand-shaped, scored and crimped crochet ballet slippers. They’re like confections, and you can imagine that in wet weather they would melt like a cake left out in the rain. Like other artwork, the hats are labeled with their art material, which might be “wool felt, taxidermied spotted nutcracker heads and golden pheasant feathers.” It appears that the birds have just landed on that hat; on another, an entire tawny owl seems to have landed, died and molted..
It’s estimated that hundreds of millions of birds from Africa, South and Central America and France itself provided these feathered decorations. Hat-making wasn’t safe for humans, either. Arsenic was used in taxidermy, and in dyes, mercury was also a part of the process, and workers were exposed to other toxic chemicals and atmospheres. The paintings and other artwork in the exhibit depict some weary hat makers as well crochet ballet slippers. Degas may have been fascinated by hats (and ballet dancers, and horses, in other works), but his paintings aren’t merely decorative illustrations. They’re character studies, whether “The Milliners” with its more modern composition, or depictions of women at the theater or walking on the street..
