Jean Dunand was one of the most significant and influential artists of the Art Deco period, who worked in a multitude of media including sculpture, lacquer-work and jewellery. His father was a goldsmith which undoubtedly influenced his pursuit of the decorative arts. Attending the École des Arts Industriels de Genève, he then became an apprentice to the sculptor Jean Dampt and exhibited his work for the first time at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900. He soon began experimenting with different techniques and materials, resulting in his move into dinanderie work. Using predominately copper, his beautiful pieces were regularly exhibited in the Salon de la Nationale des Beaux Arts and the Salon d'Automne, cementing his burgeon- ing reputation as a master of the Art.
