The hour and minute hands of @Cartier's mystery clocks seem to float on air. At the time of invention, Cartier never intended to reveal the mystery of how these works of art tick. A century later, we now know each hand is fixed to a flat disk of crystal with a concealed, notched edge driven by gears hidden in the base. Time is running out. 'Cartier: The Exhibition' closes on Sunday at 6pm. Open 10am – 6pm on the weekend. Link in bio.

Pablo Picasso acknowledges his appreciation for Rembrandt van Rijn, born #otd in 1606, in his series of intaglio prints 'The Vollard Suite'. Rembrandt redefined what it was to be an artist. Picasso claimed that an image of the Dutch master appeared to him as he was doodling over the surface of this copper etching plate. 'Picasso: The Vollard Suite' now open. Free, Orde Poynton Gallery, Level 2.
