Editorial Reviews

René Lalique : Exceptional Jewellery (1890 - 1912), by Y. Brunhammer and D. Sautot, Ed Skira, 9-½ inches x 11 inches ( 24 cm x 28 cm ), softcover book with 286 full color pages - English Edition

This is a large softcover book with 286 full color pages, very richly illustrated, that was published for the exhibition René Lalique, Exceptional Jewellery 1890 - 1912 during the Art Nouveau period that took place in Paris at the museum of Luxembourg.
This book is a look at Lalique's creative process through a selection of unusual works inluding glassware, paintings, jewellery and fashion designs that highlight both the technical and aesthetic aspects of his actual craft.
This book includes photographs taken by the artist, preparatory sketches and life-size studies, and the objects that inspired Lalique-as well as finished pieces of a period when he laid the foundations for his style Japanese Inrôs, combs, Sword guards from the Edo period as well as Japanese paintings.
The authors compare R. Lalique's work to that of his creative contemporaries and contextualize his work within the creative arts of the time.
They show how Lalique's creativity was situated among the arts, poetry, and literature of the day, and how he used other art forms to effect a stylistic renewal of jewellery that is still treasured.
With stunning images and authoritative essays, this monograph illuminates the full range of this ingenious craftsman.
