Exploring the Jeweler’s Art from Italy to India

From East to West and across cultural boundaries, the jeweler plays an important part in constructing objects and adornments of splendor. Join Laura Marsolek, graduate of Syracuse University’s Florence Master’s Program in Italian Renaissance Art, and the university’s first Henry Luce Scholar, as she discusses her journey studying the goldsmith’s craft across continents, both in the museum vaults and in the city’s workshops in Florence, Italy and Jodhpur, India. As a Luce Scholar in residence, Laura worked in the curatorial department at Mehrangarh Museum Trust in Jodhpur (2018-19). At SU, she was a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program and earned her B.F.A. degree in jewelry making and art history (College of Visual and Performing Arts). She went on to complete her M.A. degree in art history from the department of Art and Music Histories (College of Arts and Sciences).
