“Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th century” exhibition
Denver Art Museum, from November 16th, 2014 to March 15th, 2015
Following the success of exhibitions at the Grand Palais in Paris and the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, the Cartier Collection will now be on display at the Denver Art Museum. This exceptional exhibition will display 254 historic pieces from the Cartier Collection or on loan from private collectors and official institutions such as the Prince's Palace of Monaco or the Qatar Museums Authority, alongside 72 original archival documents.
As the twenty-ninth exhibition to feature the Cartier Collection, "Brilliant" will explore major themes and inspirations from the Maison's history, including icons of style, Art Déco, Royal Courts, and universal influences that span India, Persia, Egypt and China. The exhibition will be the first to highlight the Collection's men's accessories and smoking accessories. Additionally, an entire area is dedicated to the Cartier workshops, paying tribute to the various creative stages of a piece and Cartier's expertise.
