Georges Braque and Heger de Loewenfeld
Brooch, 18K Gold and Roundcut Sapphire
Signed "G Braque" numbered 52/75, but this was actually a out of market piece, kept in the personal collection of Heger de Loewenfeld. This is why there is also the marked HC (for "Hors commerce" in French). The gouache Lampetia of "Bijoux de Braque" is reproduced on photo 4.
"Bijoux de Braque" is a project of the famous french painter Braque, who designed jewelry in the last three years of his life, from 1960 to 1963. All items of this collection are made after Braque major career works he has chosen to be transposed in jewels and precious sculptures with the help of a Stonecutter, Heger de Loewenfeld. The project ended up as an exhibition at the "palais du Louvre" from march to may 1963 (Photo and 6)
There are approximatively 100 gouaches, listed in the book "Les Metamorphoses de Braque" by Heger de Loewenfeld and Raphael de Cuttoli. All subjects are renamed after Greek Mythology characters.
