[Luxus+ Magazine] Cartier and the arts of Islam

From October 21, 2021 to February 20, 2022, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de la ville de Paris will host the exhibition «Cartier and the Arts of Islam».

 

This event, organized by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris and the Dallas Museum of Art, is produced in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre and with the support of the Fondation Cartier. The exhibition traces Cartier’s relationship with Islamic art from the early 20th century to the present day. It also describes the context and atmosphere of the French capital at the time of the two key figures of the house: the founder, Louis-François Cartier, and his grandson, Louis Cartier.

 

Born in 1819, Louis-François Cartier founded the house of Cartier in 1847 at the age of 28. The company specialized in jewelry and objets d’art. His workshop-boutique was a huge success during the Second Empire of Napoleon III, when Princess Mathilde and Empress Eugenie noticed his work and propelled him onto the international stage.
