Summary "These drawings are based on a four-volume set of books titled 'Modes and Manners', a work by Max von Boehn that uses artworks from the middle ages through the eighteenth century to illustrate European fashion and mannerisms of each respective centure. 'The Wise Virgin' is from a photo of statues on the Magdeburg Cathedral, (1210-35), 'Hand to Hand Combat' is from an Albrecht Dürer work (1515), 'A Garden Party' is taken from a painting by Anthonie Palamedesz, and 'The Squire's Door' from a painting by George Morland (1790)." -- p.
