Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864), René-Charles Dassy and His Brother Jean-Baptiste-Claude-Amédé Dassy, 1850

The two Dassy brothers, Jean-Baptiste (left) and René-Charles (right) dressed in the height of 1850s men’s fashion. Jean-Baptiste wears an outdoor costume, notably a redingote, and carries gloves and a riding crop or a thin walking stick, a stylish accessory often found illustrated in fashion magazines of the period. René-Charles wears an indoor outfit of embroidered black velvet in an exotic mode known at the time as à la Grec. The clothing of the two brothers indicates both elegance and refinement, and clearly asserts their social status. Their intimate pose also suggests their close relationship, emphasised by their matching signet rings, and the affectionate placement of the older brother’s hand on the younger brother’s shoulder.
