If you are interested in mid to late 19th Century, I think the Musée d'Orsay in France might be a great option. I would really like to encourage you to go the route of using a painting you can see in Paris. This will really be a huge benefit whenever you show your research or images of the costume you build in interviews to be able to talk about your international studying.
