Historical Research

Looking at William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress for historical references and ideas for clothing, makeup and hair. I think they are useful but not exactly what I am looking for.

Looking at the traditional theatres of the 17th century after they were brought back into society following the Restoration. It became hugely popular and there was a very big social scene at the theatre which is why plays from this era are very popular.

Something which really intrigued me from this part of my research was the introduction of the proscenium arch. They were intricately detailed and framed the performances.
