Description

Johann Christian Neuber: master gold box craftsman and the gemmological secrets behind his masterpieces.

Gold boxes were not only things of beauty in the 18th century but an incredible testament to the master craftsmen who created these pocket-sized works of art. Johann Christian Neuber was one of the best craftsmen of his time and created such masterpieces for royalty and aristocracy alike, combining gold and gemstones into works of sheer perfection and daring artistry. This talk will cover some of his works, the materials that went into them, and the cultural practices surrounding these petite gold and gemstone masterpieces.
