Jean Vendome, Jewelry Artist
THE “JEAN VENDOME, JEWELRY ARTIST” EXHIBITION
October 8th to December 18th, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts will bring to light the universe of this adventurous creator, who, as a true artist, set about creating his own world. He bucked fashion trends with his own personal and pioneering style, which means that his pieces have personality, but are also visually balanced owing to their proportionality with the golden ratio. Simple yet sophisticated, powerful yet intricate, eccentric yet well-designed, constructed and deconstructed, Jean Vendome’s jewelry is emotional and never rational. In order to be appreciated fully, it must be loved and understood, as it is the jewelry that chooses the wearer.
The private collections on display will emphasize the visionary side of his creations. One hundred and thirty pieces will be on show, including Aléna Caillois’ wonderful necklace. The retrospective will also feature pieces from public collections at institutions including the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, as well as the sword of the academician Roger Caillois, on special loan from the Musée des Confluences in Lyon.
The Jean Vendome exhibition will take place from October 8th to December 18th, 2020,
at L'ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts, 31 rue Danielle Casanova, 75001 Paris.
Free admission / Tuesday-Saturday / 12pm-7pm
