The luxury Lifestyle blog (the home of luxury Lifestyle) presents ‘Cartier, Jeweler of the Arts’ exhibition in Paris.

The Fondation Cartier, the contemporary art museum of the luxury jewelry house, will present its latest expo, Cartier, Jeweler of the Arts, in Paris beginning April 3.

The exhibition brings together four artworks made by artists including David Lynch and Takeshi Kitano using precious and semi-precious stones no longer deemed suitable for the brand’s jewelry. Preview images of what they came up with here.
