Drawing, Study in Color and Form, 2016

This is a Drawing. It was designed by Jessica Turrell and Thomas Gentille. It is dated 2016 and we acquired it in 2017. Its medium is brush and watercolor, pen and ink on vellum paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Gentille considers each piece of jewelry as a one-off, and purposely dates it by the century in which it was made. His work is rightly celebrated as much for his emphasis on materials and process as for the striking aesthetic impact. To that end, his jewelry design drawings shed light on this important aspect of his practice.

It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 35.6 × 27.9 cm (14 × 11 in.)

It is signed

Signed in graphite, lower right: T. GENTILLE / 2016
