The first monograph dedicated to this unique pioneer in goldsmithing 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. Text in English and Catalan.
