About this title


Albert Paley, one of America's preeminent craft-artists, has long been known for his masterful ironwork. Before turning his energies to iron, however, Paley gained wide renown as a jewelry maker. His innovative creations of wearable sculpture, influenced by Art Nouveau and the breakthroughs of Abstract Expressionism, redefined the art. Paley's jewelry work remains powerful and dazzling, as this book and the accompanying exhibition at the National Museum of American Art's Renwick Gallery amply demonstrate. With 32 pages of color illustrations and essays by leading scholars, Albert Paley: Sculptural Adornment definitively establishes the importance, as well as the appeal, of Paley's magnificent work as an art jeweler.
