June 15 Art Encounters: Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris
10:30–11:30 am
 
Art Encounters offers docent-guided tours of Joslyn's collections and special exhibitions on the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 10:30 am. Designed to appeal to all art lovers, from the well-seasoned to the amateur, these monthly programs are a great way to learn about art with others.

Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, Paris

Join us for a look at Bijoux Parisiens: French Jewelry from the Petit Palais, a stunning exhibition which explores the intersection of French fashion, art, and history through nearly 70 works of jewelry and over 100 original design paintings, fashion prints, and photographs. Elegant brooches, necklaces, and bracelets forged from precious materials reflect the same aesthetic, social, and political concerns that drove major artists from the seventeenth century to the mid-twentieth century.
