The official monograph of Marc Riboud’s photography, created in collaboration witht he photographer, has been augmented with twenty-five additional images. Marc Riboud traveled the world recording the harmony of landscapes and the beauty in faces from Angkor to Istanbul, India to Bangladesh, and New York to China. From a painter poised like a dancer on the metal girders of the Eiffel Tower to a young woman bravely facing down a rank of riflemen in protest against the Vietnam War, Riboud’s photographs reveal his deep insight into humanity, his compassion for the human struggle, and an insatiable desire to understand the plights, triumphs, and daily life of others. While many of his photographs depict the anguish of war, others catch the evanescent delight of a swim in a sun-dappled river or children learning to whistle in a Shanghai street. An exhibition of Riboud’s photography will open at New York’s Rubin Museum on October 17, 2014.aOver the centuries, Cartier has crafted a vast catalog of exquisite jewelry, timepieces, and precious objects. The world’s greatest collectors―kings and queens, emperors and empresses, maharajas, artists, eminent industrialists, and anonymous connoisseurs alike―have passionately assembled collections of these unique pieces, perpetuating the spirit of collecting Cartier. As did the House which, following extensive research that began in the early 1980s, brought together historic and legendary jewels into the world’s most important Cartier collection―a veritable treasure and testament to the creative genius of Cartier. This reference work examines the significance of collecting Cartier in past centuries and the present day, detailing how to evaluate the criteria and styles by which a Cartier collection is assembled. It provides markers to determine the value of both historic and instantly collectible contemporary pieces, as well as precious gemstones. Insight is also given into the specificities of the art market, stylistic vocabulary, and criteria of authenticity.
