Lot Essay


Armand Point established an artist community at Haute-Claire in 1896 to execute works after his own designs, in particular jewellery. The house at Haute-Claire served as a salon for exchanging ideas and exploring symbolism. Guests included the grand master of La Rose + Croix mystic order Joséphin Péladan, Oscar Wilde and Georges Rochegrosse.
