Discover how Art Nouveau revitalized jewelers' art. This class is conducted by two art historians.
A splendid time for artistic creation, Art Nouveau identified the jewel as a work of art. Let’s decipher and interpret together the style of this period of tumultuous change: the « Belle Epoque »! To go further and to conclude our exploration we will visit the « Jewelry Gallery » inside the Museum of Decorative Art in order to enjoy major pieces of Art Nouveau jewelry.
“Less academic than a traditional Art History class, this is a course in which we offer our passion. Travelling back to the Belle Epoque, one of my favorite periods, let us guide you with famous names, such as Lalique, Guimard, Gallé, Gaudi, Tiffany… in order to have a better understanding of this unique and so specific style!”
