Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century
Exhibition, Denver Art Museum, Denver, USA, until 15 March.
The DAM hosts this world-exclusive exhibition, which features stunning jewellery, timepieces, and precious objects created between 1900 and 1975. The presentation highlights Cartier’s rise to pre-eminence and the historical events pushing the evolution of the Maison, as it transformed itself into one of the world’s most prestigious names in jewellery and accessories. A special section focused on masculine items offers a rare look at the pieces Cartier crafted especially for men, including the modern wristwatch. An immersive installation, it includes a selection of original preparatory drawings alongside historic photographs and film clips, advertising materials, and movie stills, providing insight into the evolving cultural setting of the time period.
