This publication is the catalogue of a retrospective exhibition on the work of pioneer jeweler Margaret De Patta. A seminal figure in the American Modernist Jewelry movement, De Patta trained as a painter in the Bay Area and at the Art Students League in New York. She began studying jewelry design in San Francisco, but her major learning experience was at Lazlo Moholy-Nagy's School of Design in Chicago (1940-41). Distinguished as one of the few American jewellers whose work and ideas were allied to the evolving ideas presented in the modern art movement, De Patta's work was heavily influenced by the Constructivists and features architectural forms with simple lines, structure, and often movable parts. Space - Light - Structure: The Jewelry of Margaret De Patta features more than sixty jewelry pieces as well as ceramics, flatware, photographs, pictograms, and newly released archival material.
