This new acquisitions feature brings together works by three twentieth-century innovators: photographer Germaine Krull, silversmith Emmy Roth, and jewelry artist Marjorie Schick. From daring views of metal architecture and brilliantly crafted, streamlined tableware that epitomize modernist vision, to wearable sculpture that challenges the conventions of jewelry, these artists forged bold new modes of seeing and interacting with the world.
