Antique Collectors Club Limited, 1997 - Antiques & Collectibles - 303 pages
Friedrich Becker (1922-1997) was a goldsmith of world renown and undoubtedly one of the most outstanding artistic personalities of our day, truly altering the course of goldsmiths' work in the latter half of the twentieth century. Becker was the creator of kinetic jewellery and well known as a sculptor and designer. He also worked for many years as a professor of goldsmithing at the Fachhochschule in Dusseldorf. Honours were heaped upon him and he was the recipient of many international awards. His work is collected by many major museums and has featured in innumerable exhibitions.
This book focuses on the extraordinary genius of Becker, a master craftsman and mentor, who would have welcomed this exploration of his work to inspire artists and art historians alike.
