The exhibition features five jewelry items by one of the French artists who founded Cubism. In 1961, the octogenarian Georges Braque asked the jeweler- lapidary Heger de Löewenfeld to transform a series of his gouaches based on Greek mythology. “Find the truth in the object; don’t represent it.

Two of the pieces on show belong to Diane Venet’s collection, and two others to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which in 1963, at André Malraux’s behest, devoted an exhibition to them called “Bijoux de Braque”.
