The publication Schmuck presents for the first time the complete auteur jewellery collections of Die Neue Sammlung.
The Design Museum and the Danner Stiftung. More than 1,700 items of jewellery in over 1,000 illustrations on 576 pages encompass the entire spectrum of wearable art. The unique show brings together the who’s who of international auteur jewellery from the past seventy years, meticulously curated to preserve the topmost quality.
The high artistic demand of the brooches, rings, bracelet and necklaces is compelling far beyond the boundaries of precious metals. Following intensive research, the author Petra Hölscher presents the history of the two collections as well as interviews in which the greats of the Munich jewellery scene have their say. SCHMUCK rounds off with an illustrated chronology and a short biography of each artist featured, thus setting new standards both aesthetically and scholarly.
An unprecedented look into the Munich and international jewellery scene. Indispensable for all fans of auteur jewellery!
