DMA Members-Only Preview Days: Cartier and Islamic Art

This event has already passed Location: Chilton I

DMA Members enjoy priority access during Member Preview Days.

Islamic art was a formative inspiration for Louis Cartier and the Maison Cartier in the early 20th century. Cartier’s designers adapted shapes, techniques, and materials from India, the Middle East, and North Africa, synthesizing and transforming them into a unique, modern stylistic language that continues to inspire new creations.

Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Museé des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in partnership with the Maison Cartier, Cartier and Islamic Art presents over 400 objects from major international collections, including the Department of Islamic Arts at the Louvre Museum and the Keir Collection of Islamic Art on loan to the Dallas Museum of Art.
