Opening today at Jonathan Cooper is Fiona Strickland's solo exhibition 'Tulipa'.

Fiona has long been drawn to tulips, finding their colour, shape, and form visually engaging, and the history of their depiction in art intellectually fascinating.

The small scale of her works, their jewel-like application of paint, and the use of vellum as a support connects them with the tradition of portrait miniatures, permeating them with a sense of intimacy and preciousness that is wholly appropriate for the subject: few flowers could compete with the tulip in the richness of symbolic meaning with which it has been imbued in art history, and few commodities could rival the financial frenzy of seventeenth-century ‘Tulip Mania’, and the enormous value once ascribed to its bulbs.

Visit the exhibition online on http://ow.ly/MNUj50BfHR3 or in the London gallery by appointment.

Duke Fulco di Verdura began designing jewelry in 1920s Paris with #CocoChanel, for whom he created his signature Maltese Cross Cuffs. After venturing to America and opening on Fifth Avenue in 1939, Verdura quickly gained a following among New York’s best dressed, including style icons like #DianaVreeland and #BabePaley, and Hollywood screen legends such as #GretaGarbo and #MarleneDietrich. Today Verdura continues to create jewels from the Duke’s archive of nearly ten thousand designs and is widely recognized among collectors and jewelry cognoscenti for its bold but understated “chic.”
_
In the pantheon of master jewelers from the twentieth century, Suzanne Belperron (1900-1983) stands apart as the only woman. After beginning her career with Boivin in 1919, she pioneered a new aesthetic in jewelry: sensual, tactile and arrestingly modern. With influential clients such as #ElsaSchiaparelli, the Duchess of Windsor and #DianaVreeland, Belperron is widely recognized as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Asked why she never signed her jewelry, she replied “My style is my signature.” In 2015, Belperron LLC opened its first flagship salon in over forty years in New York, featuring vintage Belperron jewels and new pieces created from her archive of over 9,200 designs.

Bowman Sculpture is the world’s leading gallery for sculpture by Auguste Rodin, earning a worldwide reputation for consistently sourcing works of the highest quality.

Auguste Rodin’s Le Penseur (The Thinker) is one of the most iconic sculptures in art history. The timeless work has become internationally recognisable as a symbol for the depths of humanity’s intelligence and philosophical genius. This, however, was not always the artist’s intention.

Rodin initially conceived the sculpture as an integral piece for the tympanum of his monumental work, La Porte de l’Enfer (The Gates of Hell). Inspired by Dante’s The Divine Comedy, Rodin originally called the sculpture, Le Poète (The Poet), and positioned it as an omniscient figure presiding over the tumultuous scenes of judgment and damnation below. Both spectator and participant in Dante’s phantasm of Hell, the sculpture immediately became a powerful and transcendent figure for critics, collectors, and enthusiasts alike.

Auguste Rodin
'Le Penseur (The Thinker), Petit Modèle'
Conceived in 1881-1882; this example cast by Alexis Rudier between 1920-1930.

Exploring the ways which certain textile producing technologies are still in effect, while others are being challenged, the works in this exhibition reflect on the place of textiles both in art, and in contemporary society.

The gallery, located in Roche Court, Salisbury is open by appointment. Alternatively, view the exhibition catalogue at sculpture.uk.com
