•Explores Capdevila in the context of the European New Jewelry movement
•Detailed study of 175 of Capdevila's greatest pieces, illustrated vividly in full color
Joachim Capdevila (b. 1944) is a master of the art of goldsmithing, whose understanding of how to meld traditional handcraft with contemporary avant-garde jewelry is second to none. At the same time, his roots, which lie in painting, are unmistakable. Yet Capdevila does not just paint metal; his one-off jewelry pieces are rather the materialization of a creative process in which metal and color combine to become a completely new entity. The Barcelona-based jewelry artist has created a unique oeuvre in some fifty years, which is now being presented in a 175-piece-strong review for the very first time. In addition, Pilar Vélez explores Capdevila's artistic development and his role as a pioneer and a major proponent of New Jewelry in Europe.
