Item description for Venini: Catalogue Raisonne 1921-1986 by Anna Venini Diaz De Santillana...

Venini. Catalogue Raisonn 1921-1986 offers an in-depth account of the involving company history of the glassworks set up by Paolo Venini in 1921 and carried forward by members of the Venini family up until 1986, the year in which the business was sold off. Alongside the comprehensive catalogue containing some 250 descriptions detailing each item produced in over six decades of activity, the book's curator Anna Venini Diaz de Santillana has traced the history of the 'Vetrerie Venini' glasshouse through each successive master craftsman's term as art director: Napoleone Martinuzzi, Carlo Scarpa, Paolo Venini himself, Tomaso Buzzi, Fulvio Bianconi, and Ludovico Diaz de Santillana.

The careful analysis underlying each critical essay and the breadth of topics covered make this book an invaluable reference work on the creative enterprise and outstanding achievements of Venini & C., long acknowledged as an international hallmark of quality in the applied arts.

With its rich array of illustrations and catalogue of the firm's key production items, and an extensive reference section comprising glossary, bibliography, and list of exhibitions, this book is the most exhaustive directory of the Venini glasshouse's production. In addition to the renowned Catalogo verde and Catalogo rosso, the curator has included the legendary Catalogo blue, and essential reference source for historians, collectors, dealers, and connoisseurs of art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Venini: Catalogue Raisonne 1921-1986?

Gorgeous Book  Jul 5, 2008
This is a gorgeous book. Venini's records burned quite a few years ago in a studio fire, but most catalog pages are represented here. A definitive history of Venini's fabulous glass from the art deco days through the '80s. Photography shows the examples of styles through the decades. Carlo Scarpa designed glass for Venini in the '30s and '40s. Beautiful art glass that is World Class Art.
