The Jewels of Lalique

On View: 
Tuesday, February 3, 1998 to Sunday, April 12, 1998

Some 200 rare pieces of art nouveau jewelry and works in glass created before World War I by Rene Lalique (1860-1945) are on view. Lalique's work first gained renown in 1900 at the Exposition Universelle in Paris and his jewelry was worn by stars and royalty, including Queen Victoria and Sarah Bernhardt. This exhibition features many rarely-seen pieces and sketches from museums and private collections.

This traveling exhibition was organized by Yvonne Brunhammer, curator at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
