Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950-1990 Docent Lecture
This docent lecture focuses on the jewelry design of Bulgari, currently on exhibit at the deYoung Museum until February 2014. Since its founding in Rome in 1884, Bulgari has become synonymous with innovation and luxury in jewelry design. The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950–1990 presents approximately 150 showstopping pieces from this era, along with sketches and other materials from the Bulgari archives. The exhibition takes a decade-by-decade look at Bulgari’s innovations in jewelry design and includes several striking pieces from the Elizabeth Taylor collection.
