This month, the work of celebrated Danish silversmith and sculptor Georg Arthur Jensen  (1866-1935) will return to The Fine Art Society in London almost 100 years after his debut UK exhibition at the gallery in 1921. Jensen will form the centrepiece of of The Fine Art Society's 'Nordic Design' exhibition (27 November - 3 January) which will feature over 130 pieces of collectable jewellery, silver and modern design furniture from a selection of Nordic designers and makers.

Jensen founded the Georg Jensen jewellery brand in 1904, which has since come to represent quality, craftsmanship and timeless style. The Fine Art Society held two Jensen exhibitions in 1921 and 1923, both of which proved to be extremely popular in post-war Britain with almost all of the silverware sold. Jensen will be showcased alongside a selection of Nordic designers and makers including Nanna Ditzel & Jörgen Ditzel, Astrid Fog, Bent Gabrielsen, Hans Hansen, Bent Knudsen, Henning Koppel, Rey Urban, Hans J. Wegner, Tapio Wirkkala and more. The exhibition provides an opportunity.

The return of Jensen to New Bond Street after nearly 100 years not only reveals the brand’s esteemed reputation in the art world, but it also demonstrates The Fine Art Society's long history of dealing in design. Indeed, The Fine Art Society has always engaged with designers and the decorative arts, from Edward William Godwin's remodelling of the gallery facade in 1881, to Whistler's redesigning of the gallery space for his seminal exhibition 'Arrangement in White and Yellow' in 1883.

The Fine Art Society represents the intersection of British art and design. This will be presented in the concurrent exhibition 'British Design' (27 November - 3 January), featuring furniture, textile, glass, metal and ceramic design from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
