Exhibition “A New Art: Metamorphoses of Jewelry, 1880-1914” in Paris from June 2nd to Sept 30th


L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts, opens an exhibition with art nouveau jewlery.

From the 1880s onwards, a radical renaissance of the imaginary, enriched by an extraordinary dissemination of scientific knowledge, enhanced creative potential in all spheres of art. At the end of the 19th century in France, this movement converged towards Art Nouveau in a creative spirit that enlivened the work of jewelry workshops.

There will be a selection of almost 100 pieces from museum, patrimonial and private collections, so it is a unique opportunity to see a selection of unique artworks.
Founded in 2012 with the support of Van Cleef & Arpels, L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts offers the public the opportunity to discover the savoir-faire of jewelry-making, gemology and the history of jewelry through a range of introductory courses, talks, exhibitions and publications, both in Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai—its three permanent sites—and in the rest of the world with traveling events.
Open to all, L’ÉCOLE’s mission is to share jewelry culture with the widest possible audience. In Paris L’ÉCOLE is located on Place Vendôme, where the spirit of jewelry is in the air, in an 18th-century mansion which embodies the French artistic tradition. The international vocation of the school leads it to travel all around the world to share jewelry knowledge, where it meets an ever increasingly diverse audience.
