Art as Jewellery: From Calder to Kapoor

Louisa Guinness

From Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, through to Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry, the great gures of modern art have all turned both thought and talent to jewellery. Often, they have eschewed the traditional jeweller’s preoccupation with material value and provenance, more concerned with the conceptual or aesthetic signi cance of their work.
Louisa Guiness, collector and gallery owner, provides insightful commentary on each artist and their work. She reveals the personal stories behind each piece’s creation, placing the artist in the contect of the genre’s evolution. Full-page colour photographs and sketches, some showing the artist at work in the studio or with their muse.
