All eyes will be on Alexander Calder’s jewelry, Robert Mapplethorpe’s portraits and Cate Blanchett’s Shakespearian foray this winter.

FASHION
Alexander Calder is best known for his massive mobiles and sculptures, but the latest exhibit of his work features something much more dainty: jewelry. New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is showing 90 of the approximately 1,800 necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches and tiaras the artist made during his lifetime. Crafted from metal, beach glass, ceramic shards and wood, the baubles have the same modern aesthetic as Calder’s fine art. Case in point: “The Jealous Husband,” a serpentine brass wire choker once worn by Anjelica Huston. Organized by the Calder Foundation in New York and the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Fla., “Calder Jewelry” heads to the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin at the end of March.
