Note: Inspired by the work of Sam Kramer and Frank Rebajes, Ed Wiener became a studio jeweler in the 1940s, with establishments in Provincetown, Cape Cod and New York City. Progressing from two dimensional pieces inspired by Picasso, to three dimensional work in the manner of Calder, Wiener's aesthetic and technical abilities continued to evolve. This brooch belongs among his earlier, handwrought works.
