In the period from the early 19th to the early 20th centuries, jewellery art tread the path from the Empire style to Art Nouveau, saw the appearance of a constellation of brilliant jewellers, got itself noticed at World’s Fairs, contributed to the revival of old jewellery techniques, and began to be collected by both connoisseurs and museums.
- What changes occurred in the typologies, style, and techniques used in the jewellery art throughout that period?
- What role did the personal preferences of royals, nobles, bourgeois play in the evolution of the jewellery art?
- How were political and military cataclysms, socio-economic changes, and the technological progress reflected in the jewellery art of the time?
