'Eosphoros' An Important Art Jewel Brooch. Source piece, February 1963
113 wonderful jewels were created by Georges Braque in the last year of his life, in collaboration with his friend Baron Heger de Löwenfeld (1919- 2000) lapidary and gem cutter. Braque had longed to translate the major themes of his paintings into three-dimensional art objects. The jewels are therefore the embodiment of the last adventure of this great artist's life. In 'Eosphoros' the bird, Braque's symbol of Space and Time, was freed from its caged existence within a picture frame.
91 brilliant cut diamonds pave set, 3.5 cts approx, ranging from 0.02 cts to 0.10 cts, surrounded by 16 topaz baguettes 4 cts approx
Very good

The jewels were exhibited to great critical acclaim at the Musée de Louvre in March 1963 under the title 'Cent Bijoux de Georges Braque'.
Le Monde referred to the jewels as 'short poems'. The New York Herald Tribune wrote; '(the pieces) are simple, devastatingly beautiful and have the mystery of Braque symbols at their best'
