Art History

Some of the most beautiful and refined decorative objects ever made were created in Paris during the 18th century. Georges-Antoine Croze (active 1790) became a master goldsmith in 1777 and established a workshop in Paris, where he specialized in small luxury objects for an elite clientele, including members of the French royal court. His delicately detailed gold and enamel boxes are notable for their finely painted portraits and rich jewel tones.
