The exhibit, at the Smithsonian Institution's International Gallery in Washington, includes 120 pieces of jewelry, 40 works in glass (another Lalique interest) and 50 drawings, and concentrates on the years 1889 to 1909.

The International Gallery is in the S. Dillon Ripley Center at 1100 Jefferson Drive S.W., Washington. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (until 8 p.m. Thursdays). Through Aug. 15. For information, call 202-357-2700.
