Most widely held works by Evelyne Possémé
The origins of l'art nouveau : the Bing empire by The origins of L'Art Nouveau( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was on 26 December 1895 that art dealer Siegfried Bing (1838-1905) opened the doors of his Paris shop L'Art Nouveau. This long-awaited event represented the birth of a new movement in art." "The Origins of L'Art Nouveau is more than a monograph on Siegfried Bing, his shop and his national and international influence. It also analyses the development of Art Nouveau, and explores the fusion of applied and fine art into an all-embracing new stylistic form. Numerous previously unpublished photographs and works of art further elucidate the narrative."--Jacket

Jeweled splendors of the Art Deco era : the Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan Collection( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One Christmas Eve, Prince Sanruddin Aga Khan gave to his wife a magnificent jeweled box made by Cartier in the 1930s. So began the making of perhaps the most remarkable jewelry collection of a remarkable era for jewelry - and for French jewelry in particular. In the 1920s and 1930s, smoky night clubs, cocktails, a new acceptance of make up beyond the boudoir, decor for smart apartments and dinner tables, provided a new landscape for the designs of the great jewelry houses of Europe, with Paris as the superstar of cities. The gloom of war was replaced either by an explosion of coloured gemstones and enamel, with bold colour codes of blue, green and orange, or by the simplicity of black, white and gold as risque black became newly chic. Zen rock gardens, Chinese dragons, Persian birds, Japanese plum blossom or Tutankhamun motifs provided the richest source of global influences in a triumph of hedonistic creativity
Fauna : the art of jewelry by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The animal kingdom has long been a source of inspiration for jewelers since the days of antiquity. Chosen for their symbolism, their beauty or their personality, a whole menagerie of creatures has been depicted in gemstones and precious metals, ranging from fantastical dragons, griffins and sphinxes, to wild beasts such as boars and big cats, to the delicate forms of birds, fish and even insects. The 130 pieces in this book have been specially selected from the magnificent jewelry collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and include necklaces and earrings, bracelets and brooches by legendary names such as Boucheron, Falize and Lalique. They stretch from the Renaissance revival of the 19th century to the elegant lines of Art Nouveau and beyond, through to the playful naivety of modernist designs by Jean Lurçat and Line Vautrin."--Dust jacket flap

Jewelry has always been a vehicle for the deepest of human emotions: remembrance, faith, devotion, love, belonging, and mourning. The human figure has long been a source of inspiration and a means of expression for jewelers, and it is perhaps the most intimate and involving of subjects. Following on from the magnificent Flora and Fauna, Figures is the third book in a series devoted to the splendid jewelry collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The museum's collection begins in the Byzantine era and ranges through the medieval and Renaissance periods and beyond, with mythological figures and biblical scenes represented on pendants and rings

Flore by Patrick Mauriès( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le musée des Arts décoratifs à Paris lance une nouvelle collection de livres sur sa collection de bijoux. Du Moyen Âge à aujourd'hui, celle-ci est riche de plus de 4000 pièces, dont les chefs-d'oeuvre sont exposés dans une galerie permanente au musée. Le thème choisi pour ce premier titre est celui de la flore. Au fil du temps, des techniques et des inspirations stylistiques, elle a donné lieu à des interprétations d'une extrême variété. Merveilleusement photographiés, en lumière naturelle, par Jean-Marie del Moral, les bijoux apparaissent dans ce livre sous un nouveau jour, dans toute leur poésie. De brefs commentaires sur les techniques, le style ou l'iconographie donnent au lecteur quelques clefs pour pénétrer dans cet univers tout aussi mystérieux que prestigieux
