Since Louis Cartier began incorporating Chinese motifs into the brand’s creations in the early 20th century, Cartier has found inspiration in China. Now, an exciting new exhibit, The Making of Art, is opening in Chengdu, China. The show explores Cartier’s fascination with China and includes 357 pieces from the Cartier Collection, including 13 that have never been exhibited before. Among the stunning display of objets d’art are several Cartier clocks including a Chinese jade carp clock and one with the Chinese goddess Kuan Yin holding a flowering branch. The Making of Art runs from April 18 through August 2, 2015, at the Sichuan Museum in Chengdu.
