    This fashion study features a remarkable piece of furniture, a trompe-l'oeil cabinet by Neo-Romantic artist Eugène Berman. Lost for many years and known only from photographs, the cabinet re-emerged, was acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum and featured prominently in their recent exhibition on Surrealist art and design.
