The Los Angeles County Museum of Art recently acquired a collection of 250 pieces, including many 18th century items, to expand its Costume and Textiles Department, which you can browse online. More details here.

Unfortunately these new acquisitions, which are supposed to put LACMA  on a par with the Met in this regard, are not to be displayed until 2010.  We’ll have to wait…
