Description

This book presents the world's largest collection of jewellery, art objects, artistic glass and drawings by Rene Lalique. Calouste Gulbenkian (1869-1955), the famous Portuguese collector, was a friend of Rene Lalique for 50 years and a great connoisseur of the various activities of this versatile artist. Between 1899 and 1927 Calouste Gulbenkian acquired 80 extraordinary works of art directly from the artist; these are conserved today in an exclusive space inside the Calouste Gulbenkian museum in Lisbon.show more
