Cleveland Museum of Art to organize Artistic Luxury Exhibition

Sep '08
The artistry and rivalry of the most prominent designers of the twentieth century are explored in Artistic Luxury: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique, an exhibition of rare loans from public and private collections worldwide and the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA). The exhibition opens October 19, 2008 and runs until January 18, 2009.

Artistic Luxury: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique reunites works by Peter Carl Faberge, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Rene Lalique and presents them together for the first time since the 1900 World's Fair in Paris.

The exhibition showcases nearly 300 objects from more than 50 international lenders, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco as well as institutions and private lenders in London, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, Lisbon, Berlin, Hamburg, and across the United States.

Exhibit highlights include:
- Five Imperial Easter eggs and the Imperial Basket of Flowers by Faberge, designed for the Russian Tsars and sold by the Bolsheviks.
- Edward VII's cigarette case, on loan from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
- Magnificent examples of Louis Comfort Tiffany's Favrile glass.
- Rene Lalique's extraordinary designs for jewelry and glass, including a new CMA acquisition, Frogs and Lily Pads Vase.

Artistic Luxury highlights the key patrons of the Gilded Age and provides visitors with a sense of the spirit of the era.

Looking critically at the development, design, and marketing of each artist, the exhibition explores how Faberge, Tiffany, and Lalique responded to the demand for luxury goods at the turn of the twentieth century.

Although all three designers competed for the same commissions and customers, each was known for his own characteristic style, achievement and geographical sphere of influence.

The exhibition will also include a variety of works by Cartier, Gorham, Boucheron, and smaller artistic firms.

Tickets for Artistic Luxury: Faberge, Tiffany, Lalique are on sale now. Tickets are $17 for adults, $12 for college students and seniors 65 and over, and $8 for children (6-18 years). CMA members and children under 5-years enter free. Discounts apply for groups of 15 or more people.
