‘Bijoux Parisiens Art’ on display at the Cummer Museum

Update: Garden Concert - The Garden Concert has been moved to Riverside Arts Market, under the Fuller Warren bridge.
The newest exhibition at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris, will be on view October 13, 2017 through January 7, 2018, featuring more than 100 works of jewelry and drawings, fashion prints, paintings, and photographs.  Exhibition produced by the Petit Palais, City of Paris Fine Art Museum, Paris Musées.

Bijoux Parisiens explores the intriguing intersection of French history, art, and fashion. Bringing together dazzling works from the great jewelry houses of Boucheron, Cartier, Chaumet, Lalique, and Van Cleef & Arpels that call Paris home, this exhibition tells the story of French jewelry from the 17th to the 20th century.

Holly Keris, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Curator at the Museum, says, “The Cummer Museum is thrilled to share Bijoux Parisiens with the community. Jewelry – from design to execution – is a creative art form with a unique history.  The exhibition traces this rich history through fine works of art, including design drawings, and stellar pieces of jewelry, from before the time of Louis XIV (r. 1643–1715) through World War II. It is going to be a showstopper!”

Bijoux Parisiens illustrates the historic events and influences that shaped French art and helped establish the great Parisian maisons that remain household names to this day. Bijoux Parisiens opens to members and the community on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 6 p.m.
