The Flagler Museum’s “Season of Style”
MAKER & MUSE:
Women and Early Twentieth Century Art Jewelry
through May 26, 2019
The Flagler Museum’s “Season of Style” continues
with an exhibition that shines a light on the inspiring
role women played in the creation and design of art
jewelry of the early twentieth century. Maker & Muse:
Women and Early Twentieth Century Art Jewelry, a
stunning exhibition of more than 200 unique pieces of
handcrafted art jewelry, celebrates the role of women,
both as inspiration and as designers/makers.
Featuring exquisite works by renowned artists such as
Louis Comfort Tiffany, Charlotte Newman, and René
Lalique, Maker & Muse: Women and Early Twentieth
Century Art Jewelry celebrates the impact of women on
art jewelry across five regions: Great Britain, France,
Austro-Germany, New York, and Chicago. These regions
saw the emergence of bold, experimental artists who
pushed the boundaries of traditional jewelry design.
