Joies d’artista. Del modernisme a l’avantguarda (Part I)

(Artist’s Jewels. From Modernisme to the Avant-garde)

During my recent trip to Barcelona, I visited this wonderful exhibition in the MNAC museum,  "the occasional but fruitful approach by artists to the world of jewellery is the central theme of this exhibition". The exhibition is still running until the 13th of February of 2011, if you have any chance to visit it, I strongly encourage it!

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was allowed to take pictures without flash. So without further ado, here is a first batch of them.

A jewelled marble sculpture representing Cleopatra opened the exhibition.
