IN THE INTIMACY OF VEVER, JEWELRY AND OBJECTS OF ART SINCE 1821
Exhibition from June 1st to July 7th
Just two years after its revival and two centuries after its creation, the House lifts the veil on the fabulous history of its dynasty of jewelers, whose central figure is Henri Vever.
In Vever's showroom, transformed into a curiosity cabinet, this exhibition immerses you into the intimacy of the House with the sound of unpublished testimonies from Henri Vever and critics of the time. You will discover exclusive jewels and objects, lent by the family, friends of the House and collectors. They have agreed to part with precious objects, jewels, medals, photographs, sculptures, drawings, paintings... for a few weeks to let you into the intimacy of Maison Vever.
Free entrance, on reservation, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 12h to 19h
Address: 9 rue de la Paix, Paris 75002
"It is quite certain that one of the most fortunate changes that have been made in recent years is precisely this mixture of gems, gold, enamel and all the more or less precious materials that make the jeweler's palette so rich and varied."
Henri Vever alias Maud Ernstyl (Art magazines at the 1900 exhibition)
"Stubbornly maintaining the 'classic' will now be seen as an admission of impotence to create something new."
