This “tissue” coat and breeches suit is from 1770s Denmark and lives in the National Museum of Denmark. I think it’s simply gorgeous. The jacket has silver embroidery while the vest features gold embroidery.
The background is a photo of the library of St. Florian Monastery in Austria with some filters applied. I do not have the patience to illustrate hundreds of books and a painted ceiling!
Construction of the library started in 1744 and is in the Baroque style. If you’re interested in other architecturally striking libraries, check out these links:
