The Forbes Collection

For seven years Alexander worked with the Forbes’s to capture the spirit and techniques of Peter Carl Faberge. Malcolm Forbes started collecting the incredible works of the famous Russian jeweler in the fifties. The collection became the world’s largest private anthology of this nineteenth century artist.

Alexander was invited to study and capture the techniques and artistic complexities of this unique compilation of the best and most expensive works of this master craftsman. On numerous trips to New York, Alexander met with the Museum’s curator to select a particular object d’ art for further study, and eventual interpretation in the Vivian Alexander Studios. The resulting sculptures now form the very foundation of the Vivian Alexander Museum collection located in the Studio and Gallery in Maurice, Louisiana.
