The World of Chaumet: The Art of Jewelry Since 1780
This event has ended.
The longest established jeweler on the exclusive Place Vendôme in Paris, Chaumet has shaped the face of elegance since its creation in 1780. From its origin as the official jeweler to Emperor Napoleon I and Empress Joséphine to date, Chaumet has continuously strived to balance tradition and innovation, with many of its creations now considered masterpieces of decorative art. Curated by Henri Loyrette, honorary President of the Louvre Museum, this exhibition comes to Japan for the first time to introduce Chaumet’s tradition and history over the last 240 years, from the latter half of the eighteenth century to the present age. Bringing refined works of art in dialogue with art trends such as Romanticism, Japonism, and Art Deco, this exhibition will feature about 300 pieces of jewelry including diamond tiaras and necklaces, as well as heritage drawings and photographs that have never before been on display.
