Art as Jewellery is a visually stunning introduction to jewelry made by the titans of twentieth and twenty-first century art. From Salvador Dalí, Man Ray, Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso, through to Anish Kapoor, Damien Hirst and Grayson Perry, the great figures of modern art have all turned both thought and talent to jewelry. Often, they have eschewed the traditional jeweler's preoccupation with material value and provenance, more concerned with the conceptual or aesthetic significance of their work.0As is fitting for a book that covers a range of artists, every image is striking as it is unique. By using contemporary pictures, 'Art as Jewellery' develops a chronological timeline of jewelry presentation. Its pages are home to a variety of design sketches and photographs. Some were shot by renowned 20th century photographers, such as Ugo Mulas and Antonia Mulas, while others have been buried in archives for decades, unseen since the '60s. In contrast, modern works have been given model treatment by top photographer Alexander English, making this book a blend of new and classic jewellery art
