A BRASIL JEWELRY WEEKEND It happens at an opportune time in front of an art increasingly plural and diverse market, and makes room for the inclusion of an artistic technique as fascinating as the other. In this sense, also brings forth the concept of fall exceeded that jewelry is not the work of art. About this prejudice, gallery owner Thomas Cohn has said: “We're talking about a product made by artists, using techniques similar to those of other arts, and its millenary history has, from the twentieth century, as protagonists, prominent figures of painting and sculpture, Picasso, Braque, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Dalí, Calder, Jean Arp, Giacometti, Fontana and many others”. In the words of gallerist: “The author of jewelry has about 40 years, 200 specialized galleries in the world and is part of the best museums collection. The reason for discrimination can only be the result of ignorance and - let's face it - a very efficient operation of the jewelry world”.
