Bijoux d'artistes de Calder à Jeff Koons brings together more than 200 jewellery pieces by influential artists of the twentieth century, including Keith Haring, Anish Kapoor, Orlan, Sol LeWitt, Jeff Koons, Niki de Saint Phalle, and Man Ray. These jewels, most of which are unique and the fruits of exceptional creators, are far from minor, decorative art. They take on the status of a work of art. Together, they form an ideal collection of works, delicate and original.
"The artist's jewel is an impulse of the heart or an empirical exploration, between first vision and the sublime." – Olivier Gabet, Director of Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris
