Marie Zimmermann

Marie Zimmermann (1879-1972) was an American metalsmith, jeweler, and designer working in New York City at the beginning of the 20th century. 

Zimmermann's creative and innovative designs for jewelry, funerary monuments, and ornamental accessories for home and garden were eclectic, often experimental, and informed by life-long interests in historical design and the natural world. Period journalists referred to Zimmermann as "the last of the great metal craftsmen … the modern Benvenuto Cellini" and "…master of a dozen crafts  perhaps the most versatile artist in this country."

Zimmermann studied at the Pratt Institute and the Art Students' League in New York before taking a suite of rooms at the National Arts Club where she maintained a workshop studio and showroom. Her designs were exhibited widely throughout her career and today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City holds the largest collection of her objects, acquiring their first example in 1922. Examples of her creations in jewelry and metalwork are also in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, and the Columbus Museum of Art.
