The eighteenth century can present more of a problem. Statues tend to be of gods and saints in a very classical mode. So there are fewer images of everyday dress, whether for the nobility or ordinary people. Therefore this section is quite wide ranging taking in many parts of the world. There is a separate section with clothes at the Museum of London, though the images are washed out due to the need to preserve the fabrics with low lighting.
