BAGUÉS-MASRIERA IS NATIONAL GALLERY REP

The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., recently chose Bagués-Masriera as the representative of the fine jewelry collection available in the gallery’s gift shop. The appointment coincided with the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Nouveau Exhibition, which was on view Oct. 8, 2000 through Jan. 8, 2001. “This is indeed a great honor for Masriera,” said Joe Meli, director of U.S. operations, adding, “The National Gallery of Art represents for us the definitive authority on what is considered authentic art nouveau jewelry.”
