Understanding Art Deco Jewels
By registration only
In 1925, the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts was held in Paris, welcoming 21 countries and 15,000 exhibitors. This major event revived luxury industries and established a style that would later be called "Art Deco", in homage to this exhibition. If Paris was the place of development of this trend, its inspirations and its success would spread internationally. The decoration of French embassies abroad or that of the great transatlantic cruise ships would spread a fabulous style, from New York to Marrakech, from Rio to Shanghai... Come and discover the sources of Art Deco, a style that jewelry happily adopted between the two World Wars and which continues to fascinate us today.
This online talk will be broadcast live from the GemGenève fair.
