NOT TITLED Brooch, late 20th century

This is a Brooch. It was designed by Thomas Gentille. It is dated late 20th century and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is bronze, gold, industrial paint. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Gentille occasionally uses gold for its unsurpassed light collecting and reflecting qualities, focusing primarily on brooches in alternative materials that have little or no traditional association with jewelry including aluminum and bronze.
