The most diverse anthology on jewellery, supported by technical information and a concise, authoritative and stimulating essay. The third Skira monograph dedicated to the modern decorative arts, following Italian Art Ceramics 1900-1950 and Twentieth-century Fabrics is an analysis of some 350 jewels by artists and designers operating in Europe and the United States from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day. The work is organised chronologically, beginning with jewellery designed in the Art Nouveau period by leading figures such as Lalique and Fouquet; works produced during the Secession (in Berlin, Munich, and Vienna) by artists such as Moser and Hoffmann; splendid art deco pieces, with a look at great names such as Cartier, Boucheron, Buccellati, Cleef & Arpels and Tiffany; a study of European and American production from the 1950s; the influences of the informal artistic culture; the use of new materials and new techniques and current influences deriving from extra-European cultures and computer-driven means of expression. The spotlight is on leading art and design figures, and the working methods and styles of the most famous production houses throughout the course of the twentieth century.
