Primavera Gallery will be having an exhibition entitled ART DECO REVISITED, which will run from November 12, 2009 through February 28, 2010. We will be showing beautiful examples of furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork, sculpture and works on paper that showcase various aspects of the Art Deco movement, as well as a few selected examples of later pieces that were influenced by Art Deco.

We were motivated to put together this exhibition not only because Art Deco has been an important focus of our gallery for the past 40 years, but also because there is so little coming onto the market now, and with the recent focus on contemporary design, we feel that young collectors, who do not have a great deal of opportunity to see fine Art Deco pieces, may be overlooking this great design period.

Included in this exhibition will be furniture by Jean-Jacques Adnet, Andre Arbus, Jules Bouy, Adolphe Chaneaux, Jean Pascaud, Eugene Rollin, Süe et Mare, Maxime Old, and Raymond Subes, a fabulous dressing table by Paul Iribe that was made for Madame Spinelly, when he designed her fabulous Paris apartment, and a great cheval mirror/dressing table by Jules Leleu.

Glass by Daum Frères, André Thuret, Aristide Colotte, and Italian glass from the 1930’s.

Silver and metalwork by Desny, including a very rare complete example of their iconic cocktail set, Jean Desprès, Daurat, Jean Dunand, Claude Linossier, and Tétard Frères.

Ceramics and porcelain by Jean Mayodon, Émile Decoeur, Edouard Cazaux, Maurice Gensoli, Celine Lepage, Sèvres, Jean Besnard.

Sculpture by Alfred-August Janniot and Pierre Traverse, works of art by Cassandre, Jean Dupas, Raphaël Delorme and Jean Lurcat.

Jewelry by Raymond Templier, including a spectacular piece in 18k white gold set with turquoise and onyx. Striking pieces by Jean Desprès, a beautiful brooch in the Persian taste by Tiffany & Co. in platinum, onyx and coral, a Marcus and Co. articulated bow brooch in platinum, diamonds and pearls, several pieces by Suzanne Belperron, Cartier, and, of course, our beautiful jewels from all periods.

We welcome the opportunity to talk with you, and hope you will visit the gallery to see and enjoy this elegant and exciting show.
