    18.15 Panel Discussion: A New Generation of Collecting
    As the art market is expanding and reaching more diverse audiences, a new generation of collectors is emerging, incorporating works from digital art to pre-historic artefacts and luxury goods. Alongside the vibrant and multi-media exhibitions at Masterpiece London, this panel discussion considers how new collectors are responding to this opportunity to re-think traditional approaches to collecting; how they can consider a broader range of artworks while remaining focused on their own collecting interests; and how to collect wisely, in acknowledgement of art market trends, but without being led by them.

CARTIER PANTHÈRE: A NEW BOOK BY ASSOULINE

Cartier Panthère: An Exclusive Book Signing with Co-author and Jewellery Historian Vivienne Becker

Sunday 28 June at 15.00–17.00 

Silently stalking its way through Cartier iconography for a century, the panther is the proud leader of the pack of precious animals that make up the famous Cartier menagerie. No other creature or jewel is quite so indissolubly and emotively connected to outstanding 20th-century women of style, to ideals of modern femininity, and has become Cartier’s most iconic motif for a century.

Featuring texts by jewellery historian Vivienne Becker, jewellery expert Joanna Hardy, art historian Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter, and fashion editor André Leon Talley, Cartier Panthère chronicles the panther in art history, the evolution of Cartier panther jewels, the techniques involved in creating a Cartier panther jewel, the influence of the panther in fashion, design and popular culture, and includes a chronology of 100 years of Cartier panther jewels.

Vivienne Becker is a contributing editor to Financial Times’ How to Spend It magazine, writes for newspapers and magazines around the world, and lectures and broadcasts on her subject.

VANITY FAIR & INTELLIGENCE SQUARED

The Bling Ring: Meet the jewellery world’s ‘inner circle’

Theo Fennell, Stephen Webster, Shaun Leane and Solange Azagury-Partridge have been dubbed the ‘inner circle’ of London’s jewellery cosmos for their dazzling achievements. On June 29 at 19.00 (Champagne Reception at 18:30), Intelligence Squared will bring them together for an in-depth discussion of their craft and a behind-the-scenes glimpse of working life in their ateliers. Exploring jewellery’s lesser-known historic links to the art world, the panelists will look at the trends that are being revived in today’s jewellery market and even among modern artists and architects.

Join them for this rare group appearance, in conversation with jewellery expert and author Carol Woolton, to discover what goes on behind the glittering doors of their workshops.

Tickets: £30 (includes admission to Masterpiece London, the art, antiques and design cross-collecting fair.)
