Artistic Luxury: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique at the Cleveland Museum of Art

I just saw this AMAZING exhibition, Artistic Luxury: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique, at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The show is fabulous. It features over 300 jewelry and luxury items by these artists. It's the first time since the 1900 World's Fair that works by Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique have been exhibited together. These three were rivals and with each piece they tried to surpass one another in design and opulence.



The museum showcases each master's work in seperate gallery spaces… Continue

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word.
