Since the end of the 19th century, the craft of goldsmithing has gained in importance in Munich, and substantial numbers of goldsmiths still live and work in the city today. This is in no small part due to the internationally renowned jewelry and hollowware course offered by the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. The Münchner Stadtmuseum has been fortunate to acquire a collection of Munich jewelry dating mainly from the period between the 1880s and 1930s and has joined forces with students from the Academy of Fine Arts course and their professor, Karen Pontoppidan, to mount an exhibition of this work. It seeks not only to offer visitors insights into these historical works and their background, but also to showcase today’s budding jewelry artists, their training, aims, approaches and significant works.
