Art as Jewellery. From Calder to Kapoor
The women in Man Ray's life, as well as his reverence for the female form more broadly, were reflected in his jewellery.

New techniques, impossible to imitate, risked consigning the firm's earlier production (from 1925 to the Second World War) undeservingly to the shadows while they placed Venini artworks among the high...
