The first monograph on one of the key figures in the 'studio jewelry movement', which began after World War II A comprehensive overview featuring around 80 jewelry objects Helga Zahn (1936-1985) was one of the leading jewelry artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. The autodidact, who was raised in Schwarzenbach an der Saale, had a preference for silver and natural materials such as pebbles. Her one-off jewelry is made unique by the clarity of simple geometric forms, the lightness and simplicity of the combinations, and a reduced color palette. With her new systematic way of thinking, she revolutionized the studio jewelry movement that was forming across the globe in the mid 1960s. With around a hundred jewelry objects, this comprehensive review invites you on a journey of rediscovery and reappraisal of this exceptional artist. Text in English and German.
