Galerie MiniMasterpiece, created in the Spring of 2012 by Esther de Beaucé, is the first Parisian gallery exclusively dedicated to limited editions and sale of jewelry by renown contemporary visual artists and designers.
Like a very private collection that one wears and carries along, artists jewelry first strike by the love, the friendship and the challenge that have preceeded their existence. These miniature works of art tell us about another History of Art, that of intimacy and passion.
For collectors, choosing an artist or a designer jewel, wearing it around the neck, the wrist or the finger, is a statement. For the artists it is both a pastime and a challenge, that is to achieve the successfull confrontation of their monumental work to the scale of the body.
Those who have so far worked directly with the gallery include the artists Joana Vasconcelos, Wang Keping, Jean-Luc Moulène, Julio Le Parc, François Morellet, Katinka Bock, Barthélémy Toguo, Françoise Pétrovitch, Véra Molnar, Nicolas Bu"e, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Philippe Ramette, Phillip King, Miguel Chevalier, Pablo Reinoso, Sophia Vari, Andres Serrano, None Futbol Club, Faust Cardinali, Jacqueline de Jong and designers Christian Ghion, Pierre Charpin, Constance Guisset, Pierre Gonalons, Nestor Perkal, David Dubois, François Azambourg, A+A Cooren, Frédéric Ruyant, Maurice Marty and Cédric Ragot.
