Bijoux d'artistes, de Calder à Koons. La collection idéale de Diane Venet
What are artists' jewels? These are exclusively creations by artists, painters or sculptors. An artist's jewel, just like a painting or a sculpture, is a work of art. Born of the same creative process, he has the strength, the poetry, the provocation and sometimes the humor. Their destination alone distinguishes them. The jewel is not a work of art like the others since it is intended to be worn, giving the woman the role of muse then support and collector or guardian.
This book stages and decrypts Diane Venet's favorite works: Picasso, Giacometti, Dali ... Many major artists have tried jewelery for the sake of a woman or a girl. Because they tell a certain history of art, made of exclusivity and passion, these works of art have a special place to occupy in the museum. "In my often traveling life, my jewelry collection is the intimate museum that I can take with me, and the treasure I find when I return. Confesses Diane Venet.
Through the book and the exhibition that accompanies it, the reader enters, as it were, into the mystery of each piece of jewelery through the detailed manual illustrated with a photograph. What links existed between the creator and his recipient? What led the artist to choose this form of art? We pierce its secrets, we discover its history. A rare invitation to discover a personal museum.
