DESCRIPTION

Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Max Ernst, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Jeff Koons and Anish Kapoor are some of the 20th century's greatest and best known artists. What is less well known are the incredible works of sculptural beauty created by these artists in the form of jewelry. In an exhibition of over 240 masterpieces Picasso To Koons: Artist As Jeweler explores works from an array of artists, not known as jewelers, who have created stunning works of jewelry both reminiscent of their existing artistic vocabulary and in other instances representing a striking departure from their oeuvre. These richly imaginative pieces were never intended for mainstream production, but rather were created as one-of-a-kind pieces or limited editions, that were often personal gifts made for family and friends, revealing an intimate view into the lives of the artists who created them. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by Flammarion/Rizzoli.
