At Dallas Museum of Art
After the Musée des Arts décoratifs at Paris, the exhibition: Cartier and Islamic Art: In Search of Modernity is shown at the Dallas Museum of Art. The exhibition explores the origins of Islamic influence on Cartier through the cultural context of Paris in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The 400 objects show how Cartier’s designers adapted forms and techniques from Islamic art in a modern stylistic language unique to the jewelry house.
The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre and with the support of Maison Cartier.
