Rare glass objects from the latter half of the nineteenth century illustrate the beginning of the effort to revive art glass production in Murano. Magnificent examples of murrine, a type of glassware, represent the early twentieth century, some of them with designs by Hans Stoltenberg-Lerche. The lively 1930s and 1940s are notable for the glass produced by the Barovier factory, followed by the colourful and glowing 1950s and 1960s objects of Dino Martens, Ansolo Fuga, Fulvio Bianconi et al.
Very rare glass objects from the collaboration between Fucina degli Angeli and artists of international standing, including Cocteau, Picasso and Kokoschka, round off this documentary encompassing more than a century of Murano art glass.
Included here is an historical survey of Murano glass, thanks to one of the largest and most important American private collections, providing fresh insights into the field of Italian glass. Superlative photographs, contemporary documents and archive material, fresh information
