The Denver Art Museum (DAM) is preparing to host the world-exclusive exhibit Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century.
From Nov. 16, 2014, through March 15, 2015, the museum will display hundreds of pieces of jewelry, watches, and other precious creations produced by Cartier between 1900 and 1975, while highlighting the brand’s grand rise and transformation into one of the world’s premier luxury brands.
“The evolution of Cartier takes us on a journey through 20th century history, from the era of the last czars in Russia to the Roaring Twenties in America to the onset of Hollywood glamour as we know it,” said museum director Christoph Heinrich in a statement. “We hope people come from near and far to take advantage of this rare opportunity and experience all that Denver and the Denver Art Museum have to offer.”
A statement released by the DAM notes that the exhibit will include a special section with particular focus on items for men, including the modern wristwatch.
Tickets for this special exhibition will go on sale this summer.
