Scandinavian Design: Silver and Jewellery

3 - 25 April 2018

The Fine Art Society presents an exhibition of modern design silverware from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

 

These pieces demonstrate the diversity of styles, and the idiosyncratic characteristics that developed in field of modern design in Skandinavia as a reaction to Post War austerity.  Beginning with early Art Nouveau inspired jewellery, Flatware and Hollowware by George Jensen, the show explores the  innovation and experimentation of Scandinavian design, through the formal Art Deco period of the 1920s and 30s; and the functional and restrained designs of the Postwar era; to the minimal and kinetic jewellery of the 1960s and 70s; and the elegant, organic designs of the 1980s.
