Vever Lecture at FIT

The American Society of Jewelry Historians will present, “Vever, A Man For All Seasons: Jeweler, Artist, Historian” Thursday, at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. The 6 p.m. lecture will be lead by historian and author Brenda Forman. 

Henri Vever was a leader in the blossoming Art Nouveau movement at the turn of the 20th century. History primarily remembers him as a superbly gifted jewelry historian. His three volume work “La Bijouterie Francaise au 19ème Siécle” (French Jewelry of the Nineteenth Century) remains the authoritative work on the subject. Forman, translator of this iconic work, will discuss Vever as the jeweler and the author.

The event is open to members and guests. Guests are welcome with a pass or they can pay $10 at the door.
