Tea Gown Liberty & Co., 1885. The Artistic dress had its roots in mid-Victorian England, where Pre-Raphaelite artists, with their love of things medieval, and disdain of industrialized society, revived a version of the loose fitting, relatively plain gowns of that time. Its successor, Aesthetic dress, drew from the same design, but not philosophical.
