The Worlds of Chaumet - The Art of Jewellery Since 1780
Until 17th September 2018
The longest established jeweller 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 jeweller 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 master pieces of decorative arts. Curated by Henri Loyrette, honorary President of the Louvre Museum, this Exhibition comes to Japan for the first time ever, 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 jewellery including diamond tiaras and necklaces, as well as heritage drawings and photographs that have never before been on display.
Opening hours: 10:00 - 18:00 Saturday - Thursday, 10:00 - 21:00 Fridays. Closed Mondays.
