“Art as Jewellery” in a New Coffee Table Book by Louisa Guiness
Art as Jewellery: From Calder to Kapoor is a visual introduction to jewellery made by the titans of twentieth and twenty-first century art. From Salvador Dali, Man Ray, Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, through to Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry, the great figures of modern art have all turned both thought and talent to jewellery.
Author Louisa Guiness, collector and gallery owner, provides insightful commentary on each artist and their work. She reveals the personal stories behind each piece’s creation. This visual feast contains full-page color photographs and sketches, some showing the artist at work in the studio or with their muse.
