Oscar-winning costumes from Barry Lyndon on display...

With the 85th Academy Awards fast approaching here's the perfect opportunity to have a closer look at a previous Oscar-winning Costume Designer's work, in this instance from Stanley Kubrick's 1975 period drama, Barry Lyndon.

It's always a pleasure to be able to see movie costumes up close, especially when they are not surrounded by a display case.

Many of the costumes used in Barry Lyndon were genuine antique clothes, whilst other were custom-made for the film based on clothing represented in period paintings. Milena Canonero drew inspiration for the scenes in England from such works by Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds, whilst for the movie's candlelit scenes the Italian designer was influenced by the German painter Adolph Menzel.
