A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Art of jewellery-making has taken many forms, and today the most adventurous and innovative is one in which the values of art and the individual are set above the concerns of fashion, commerce and industry. Emerging as an international movement in the early 1970s, contemporary jewellery is now a well-established category in the art world.
This reappraisal of the nature and role of jewellery is, with gathering momentum, regenerating the ancient art, so that the meaning and purpose of jewellery is being redefined for the present-day world. Contemporary jewellery, as described by these criteria, has become one of the most intensive and absorbing sectors in the international arts.
The Best in Contemporary Jewellery is a snapshot survey of recent work by 64 outstanding artists, craftsmen and designers from 14 countries. Three sections - Idea, Object and Image - offer a unique perspective on their individual attitudes and achievements. Idea is a short portfolio of sketch designs and inspirations from some of the contributors, while Object, the main core of the book, is a gallery show of several works from each artist. The last section, Image, shows a selection of objects against the body.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, The Best in Contemporary Jewellery is a celebration of some of the most outstanding craftsmanship and imagination displayed in recent jewellery-making.
