Art Deco Jewelry: Modernist Masterworks and their Makers

Author: Evelyne Posseme

This comprehensive survey features Art Deco jewelry made by the world’s leading designers and makers between 1910 and 1937. Not only does it include famous names from the Art Deco period; it also restores other notable jewelers to their proper place in one of the most creative eras for beautiful, stylish work. Drawing on public and private collections worldwide, the book includes some of the best-known pieces of Art Deco jewelry, together with many original drawings and designs. A number of the world’s foremost authorities explore the world of Art Deco jewelry with essays on the context of the modern movement; on clients and collectors; on the relationship between jewelry and the fine arts, architecture, and the movies; and on the world of graphic art, commercial design, and advertising.
Eighteen makers are featured individually, including Paul Brandt, Suzanne Belperron, René Boivin, Louis Cartier, Jean Després, Jean Fouquet, Gérard Sandoz, and Raymond Templier. There is a complete guide to all the illustrated pieces, and suggestions of further reading both on the individual artists themselves and on the period in general. With contributions by Laurence Mouillefarine, Arlette Barré-Desponds, Michel Wlassikoff, Hélène Andrieux, and Melissa Gabardi. 200 color, 150 b&w illustrations.
