FANtasy celebrates outstanding examples of fan makers’ art spanning three centuries. Recently gifted to the FIDM Museum by Fashion Council member and renowned gemologist Mona Lee Nesseth, this remarkable collection of masterworks spans the golden age of fan creativity. Additionally, a specially commissioned fan from France’s leading eventailliste, Sylvain Le Guen, highlights the talents of this present day artisan of the haute couture. Together, these handheld artworks attest to both the skills of their creators and the connoisseurship of their collector.
