In the South Hall
Didier Ltd is a gallery unique in specializing in jewelry made and designed by painters, sculptors, architects and designers from the late 19th to the end of the 20th century.The gallery will be presenting a selection of jewels created by Modern Masters, by painters and sculptors whose artworks are collected and prized internationally although their contributions to jewelry design might be less well known. All these jewels have been acquired from the secondary art market and with the benefit of hindsight so that the pieces selected truly reflect the artists’ oeuvre. Furthermore, the gallery will be concentrating on jewelry by women artists who often started by making pieces for themselves, so that the jewelry they wore became an extension of their artistic persona.
