This year, the perfect costume is less about perfectionism and more about personalization
love Halloween and a unique costume is a must-have for a Hallowinning
celebration. But dressing up for Halloween this year involves more
than just looking good; there are a number of personal considerations
including customization and value that come into play when creating
the perfect costume. So, it’s no surprise that of those surveyed
nearly 90 percent of shoppers admired unique costumes put together
with second-hand items, and 74 percent said they’d shop thrift if
second-hand stores have a Halloween section, according to new
research by the Savers® family of thrift stores (Savers®, Value

Marvel & HBO-Inspired Costumes: Ninety-two percent of
Americans believe movies and TV shows will be the top inspirations

Zs Want to Stand Out, In Person & Online: Seventy percent of
Gen Zs want to stand out with their costume choice and the majority
(76 percent) plan to post their Halloween experiences on social
and Customization Reigns: A “cool” costume needs to be
creative, original and homemade, according to survey respondents,
and 61 percent claim they’d like to wear a costume that no one else
will have. More than ever before, Americans are enjoying the
experience of DIY-ing their costumes, using a mix of previously
owned and brand-new items. Sixty-four percent plan on customizing
their costume with personal touches to “make it their own,”
with merely a quarter planning on buying a new, as-is packaged

Americans use their creative freedom to showcase bits of their

point that works for them.

on view November
1, 2019 – January 26, 2020
in the Joyce
B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery of the Center for Women’s
presents 114 watercolors and drawings by Anne
Marguérite Joséphine Henriette Rouillé de Marigny,
Hyde de Neuville (1771–1849).
Self-taught and ahead of her time, Neuville’s art celebrates the
young country’s history, culture, and diverse population, ranging
from Indigenous Americans to political leaders. Curated by Dr.
Roberta J.M. Olson,
curator of drawings at New-York Historical, this exhibition is the
first serious exploration of Neuville’s life and art—showcasing
many recently discovered works including rare depictions of European
scenes and people at work, a lifelong sociological interest—and is
accompanied by a scholarly catalogue.
Hyde de Neuville’s status as a woman, an outsider, and a refugee
shaped her view of America and Americans, making her a particularly
keen and sympathetic observer of individuals from a range of
socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds,”
said Dr. Louise Mirrer, president and CEO of the New-York Historical
could never have envisioned that her visual diary—created as a
personal record of her travels and observations of early
America—would become an invaluable historical document of the early
republic. Yet her drawings vividly evoke the national optimism and
rapid expansion of the young United States and capture the diversity
of its inhabitants.”
to an aristocratic family in Sancerre, France, Henriette married
ardent royalist Jean Guillaume Hyde de Neuville, who became
involved during the French Revolution in conspiracies to
reinstate the Bourbon monarchy and was accused of participating in a
plot to assassinate Napoleon. In an effort to disprove the charges
against her husband, the baroness took her cause directly to
Napoleon, who was impressed with her courage and allowed the couple
to go into exile. They arrived in New York in 1807 and stayed for
seven years. During their second American residency (1816–22), when
her husband served as French Minister Plenipotentiary in
Washington, D.C., Henriette became a celebrated hostess. John
Quincy Adams described her in his diary as “a woman of
excellent temper, amiable disposition… profuse charity, yet
judicious economy and sound discretion.” In 1818, she presciently
stated that she had but one wish “and that was to see an American
lady elected president.”
in Exile follows
Neuville’s life, reconstructing her artistic education and tracing
her artistic practice, which included portraiture, landscapes and
cityscapes, ethnographic studies, botanical art, and other genres.
Highlights of the exhibition include Neuville’s views of the Hudson
and Mohawk rivers, street scenes of her neighborhood (now known as
Tribeca), a watercolor documenting an “Indian War Dance”
performed for President
and portraits of subjects ranging from Indigenous Americans to
immigrant students at a Manhattan school founded by the Neuvilles.
The exhibition opens with Neuville’s miniature self-portrait (ca.
1800-1810) that was likely created for her husband to carry on his
travels. Pictured wearing a fashionable daytime empire-waist dress
over a chemisette, fingerless mitts, and hoop earrings, the baroness
looks away, not engaging the viewer as is customary with
self-portraits that are drawn using a mirror because she based it on
first reaching the United States, the Neuvilles journeyed up the
Hudson River and to Niagara Falls, where Henriette was one of the
first to record many early settlements, buildings, and rustic scenes.
In the watercolor Distant
View of Albany from the Hudson River, New York (1807),
she drew the panoramic view from the sloop Diana
it traveled downriver from Albany, chronicling the river long before
The atmospheric vista conveys the majestic sweep of the Hudson and
the reflections on its surface. In Break’s
Bridge, Palatine, New York(1808),
Neuville, who was intrigued by engineering and technology, depicts a
newly constructed Mohawk River bridge destroyed by rushing waters.
The couple in the foreground of the image is the Neuvilles, with
their pet spaniel, Volero.
also captured vivid views of New York City residents and
buildings—many of them long since demolished—bringing to life the
burgeoning urban center and its ethnically diverse population. Corner
of Greenwich Street (1810)
represents a scene at the intersection of Greenwich and Dey streets.
Near the cellar hatch of the brick house at the center stands an
Asian man, who may be the Chinese merchant Punqua Winchong, making
this work one of the earliest visual records of a Chinese person in
the United States.
Neuvilles contributed to the cultural life in New York as co-founders
of the École
School), incorporated in 1810 as the Society
of the Economical School of the City of New York.
Its mission was to educate the children of French émigrés and
fugitives from the French West Indies and to offer affordable
education to impoverished children. Henriette sketched the students
at the school, and many works from the “Economical School Series”
are on view in the exhibition, including the recently discovered life
size portrait, Pélagie
Drawing a Portrait(1808),
which demonstrates the school’s emphasis on drawing. Her series is
the only visual record of the school’s existence.
couple returned to France in 1814 after the fall of Napoleon and the
restoration of King Louis XVIII and the Bourbon monarchy. In
1816, Louis XVIII appointed the baron French Minister
Plenipotentiary, and the Neuvilles returned to the U.S., settling in
Washington, D.C. They became renowned for their lavish Saturday
evening parties and their friendships with President James Monroe
and James and Dolley Madison. Among the notable events the
Neuvilles attended was an “Indian War Dance,” performed by a
delegation of 16 leaders of the Plains Indian tribes in front of
President Monroe and 6,000 spectators at the White House on November
29, 1821. Neuville’s watercolor documenting the event includes
likenesses of half-chief Shaumonekusse (Prairie Wolf) and one of his
five wives, Hayne Hudjihini (Eagle of Delight). Later, the “War
Dance” was also performed at the Neuvilles’ house.
portraits of individuals celebrate the ethnic and cultural diversity
of the early American republic, and her portrayals are notable for
their ethnographic integrity and avoidance of stereotypes. In the
portrait of Peter
of Buffalo, Tonawanda, New York(1807),
the sitter has ear lobes pierced with earrings and bare feet,
traditional for Seneca tribesmen. Wearing an undershirt, a fur piece,
and leggings with garters, he carries a tomahawk, a knife, a powder
horn, and a string of wampum. In the portrait Martha
Church, Cook in “Ordinary” Costume(1808–10),
Neuville depicts a cook in her everyday attire, as part of the
artistic tradition of occupational portraits that originated in
Europe and appeared in New York in the early 19th century.
