David Yurman’s Sculptural Voyage at The Art Show

No contributor

Last week, jeweler David Yurman showcased his original art and historic designs in a celebration of his company’s origins. The exhibition, titled “The Voyage of Art and Jewelry,” spanned his bronze sculptures made in the sixties and seventies, through the first cable bracelets of his signature Renaissance collection, dating back to 1982, all the way to the High Jewelry Collection, which was introduced in 2010, featuring one-of-a-kind designs studded with vibrant gemstones.

In the exhibition, adjacent to The Art Show at the Park Avenue Armory, Yurman shares his company’s saga, including its romantic origin: the “Dante” necklace, a chain of infernal bronze figures, sculpted for his wife of 44 years and then-girlfriend, Sybil Yurman. At a New York art opening, a gallerist fell in love with the piece, and the young couple soon released their first collections, melding Sybil’s color insight as a painter and David’s sculptural talent to found the David Yurman brand in 1980. The show includes swathes of Yurman’s fluid bronze sculptures, ranging from wall-hangings to life-sized figures leaping off of pedestals.
