For the entire length of his career, Jean Vendome never ceased to innovate and surprise. A true master of the liberating constraint, fully immersed in the artistic practices of his time, he knew how to conjugate audacious formal research and taste for design, with his own personal form of romanticism, and all of this, without either losing any of his radicality or ever looking backwards.  This presentation will give the opportunity to make his creations resonate with those of his contemporaries in order to especially understand their importance in jewelry history and, more widely, in the art of the second half of the 20th century.
