Jewellery in the Age of Modernism 1918-1940: Adornment and Beyond
Jewellery in the Age of Modernism explores the relationship between jewelry, modernism, and modernity from the 'jazz age' to the second world war in order to challenge the view that these portable art forms have only a minor role to play in histories of modernism. From the masterworks of the Parisian jewelry houses to the film and photography of Man Ray, this study seeks to present jewelry in a new light, where issues of representation and display are considered to be as important in the creation of a modern 'jewelry culture' as the objects themselves.
