People with Veils
Curated by
Alan Griffiths
1. A length of cloth worn by women over the head, shoulders, and often the face.
2. A length of netting attached to a woman‘s hat or habit, worn for decoration or to protect the head and face.
"It was as if a veil had been torn suddenly away; I had understood, I had grasped what painting could be. "
Claude Monet
(quoted in G. Jean-Aubry & Robert Schmit, Eugène Boudin, Greenwich: New York Graphic Society, 1968, pg. 27)
