In partnership with the Comédie-Française, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts will be showcasing stage jewelry worn by the most famous actors and actresses - Talma, Rachel, Sarah Bernhardt... - retracing the history of stage jewelry since the 18th century. Jewelry, paintings, drawings and manuscripts bear witness to the opulence of these objects, which, while often made from non-precious materials, feature their jewelers’ skills.

Curators: Agathe Sanjuan, curator-archivist at the Comédie-Française, and L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts.

*The exhibition “Stage Jewels of the Comédie-Française” will be open at a later date. Follow us on social media @lecolevancleefarpels
