This exhibit is both a celebration of Art Deco jewelry and of the work of the jeweler and precious metalsmith Jean Despres (1889-1980). 180 of this artist’s works, inspired by Cubism and machinery, are being shown alongside works by the great names of French jewelry in the 1930s: Jean Fouquet, Gerard Sandoz, Raymond Templier, and also by architects (Robert Mallet Stevens), interior designers, (Jean Dunand) and silversmiths (Jean Puiforcat), all illustrating the formidable attraction jewelry exercised over the artists of the period.
