Cartier: Innovations of the 20h Century
MOSCOW • Kremlin Museum • Ongoing
|An exhibition of Cartier designs representing masterpieces of 1920s - 1930s that were created in Indian, Chinese, Egyptian tradition with application of authentic exotic materials and decorative elements, e.g., colourful "Tutti Frutti" artworks. Two outstanding tiaras (one of which is made of citrines and diamonds, the other - of aquamarines and diamonds) exemplify the Cartier's design style modified by the late 1930s, when dimensions of articles, made of gold, were enlarged and composition was sophisticated. These are but a few of the highlights of this exhibition devoted to the French jeweler.|
