Intro
The New Schwandt Collection presents 166 highlights by forty-eight Danish artists. The book includes general aestetic evaluation, notes on artists and workshop, list of signatures and a special chapter on how to date early Georg Jensen jewellery.
 
Until c. 1920 the chasing technique creates an intensive plasticity; the imagery is concrete and close to nature. The functionalistic period with its geometrical design leaves the narrative element behind, preparing for the abstract, sculptural forms of the 1950s. Smooth surfaces and lively reflections of light characterize the second half of the century.
The New Schwandt Collection presents 166 highlights by forty-eight artists, all of which are illustrated. Besides providing a general aesthetic evaluation, the author closely observes artists and tendencies over twenty chapters. The book includes notes on artists and workshops, a list of signatures, bibliographical notes and a special chapter on how to date early Georg Jensen jewellery.

Selected artists
Mogens Ballin, Thorvald Bindesboll, Georg Jensen, Erik Magnussen, Karl Gustav Hansen, Henning Koppel, Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel, Bent Knudsen, Bent Gabrielsen Pedersen and Bent Exner.

Jörg Schwandt is a collector, author and gallerist who has widely published on German applied arts and Danish silver. A first collection of twentieth-century Danish silver jewellery, compiled together with his wife, Marion, over a period of forty years and comprising 950 objects, is now permanently on view at Den Gamle By in Aarhus (DK).
