Cartier Panthère is an illustration that silently stalked its way through Cartier iconography for a century; the Panther is the proud leader of the pack of precious animals that make up the famous Cartier menagerie. This book illustrates the panther throughout art history and popular culture, chronicles the creative evolution and technical expertise behind Cartier’s exquisite Panther jewelry, and recounts anecdotes of legendary Cartier personalities and patrons from Jeanne Toussaint and Daisy Fellowes to María Félix and the Duchess of Windsor. Featuring stunning imagery, including rarely seen preparatory drawings from the Cartier archives and the most recent haute joaillerie creations unveiled at the 2014 Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, this beautiful book volume is the definitive collection of 100 years of Cartier Panther jewels. Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter, Vivienne Becker, Joanna Hardy, and André Leon Talley.
