Cartier at Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

Written on October 24, 2012 by Fernando Dameto Zaforteza in Arts & Cultures & Societies

Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum  shows an exhibition with pieces from the historic Cartier Collection of the legendary French jewellers Cartier. The exhibition presents a comprehensive selection of the finest jewels that Cartier has repurchased over the course of the decades in order to assemble a representative collection of the Maison’s production and to show the evolution its style during the first half of the 20th century. Exhibits range from the great tiaras and the so-called Garland style of the early 20th century to Art Deco jewels and others inspired by exotic places (China, Egypt and India, including the famous “tutti frutti” pieces), gold jewellery of the 1930s and 1940s and one-off commissions for leading personalities of the century such as Wallis Simpson, Grace Kelly, María Félix, Elizabeth Taylor and Coco Chanel. This is a major exhibition that will introduce visitors to one of the world’s finest jewellery collections, allowing us to appreciate the creativity and mastery of Cartier’s designers and artist-jewellers over the course of more than one hundred years.

“The Art of Cartier” is on view through February 17 at Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Paseo del Prado 8, 28014 Madrid, +34902760511, www.museothyssen.org

Several months ago, I was talking to a very nice painter and artist from South Africa. She was born in London, and picked out a nice place with a scenic view to do her artistry. You see, I had written an article predicting that very soon artificially intelligent robotic painters, artists, and sculptors would soon be impeding upon human artists, and perhaps even producing higher quality work – art which would be preferred by human enthusiasts over the work done by human painters. She told me I was nuts. Okay so let’s talk about this shall we?
