Footnotes

  • René Lalique (1860-1945) was the undisputed master of Art Nouveau jewellery design. Nature was a pivotal theme in his work, his appreciation stemming from the time spent sketching in the French countryside during his childhood holidays. His work often incorporates botanically correct and careful depictions of plants and flowers. Here, the use of cornflowers, symbols of love, frame the delicate profile of the maiden and enhance the romantic, wistful quality of this exquisite jewel.
