Art As Jewellery: From Calder To Kapoor

Book by Louisa Guinness  



In Art as Jewellery, every image is as striking as it is unique. By using contemporary pictures, we develop a chronological timeline of jewellery presentation. Art as Jewellery’s pages are home to a stunning variety of design sketches and photographs - some taken by renowned 20th century photographers such as Ugo Mulas and Antonia Mulas. Other photographs have been buried in archives for decades, unseen since the 1960s. In contrast, modern works have been given model treatment by top photographer Alexander English, making this book a glamorous blend of new and classic jewellery art.


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.


This book is for art and jewellery lovers alike.
