Item description for Venetian Glass: 20th Century Italian Glass from the Olnick Spanu Collection by Marino Barovier, David Revere McFadden & Suzanne K. Frantz...

Italian art glass of the 20th century represents a high point in the history of the medium. In this century, such legendary Muranese factories as Venini, Seguso and Barovier & Toso, among others, joined forces with major artists, architects, designers, and skilled glassworkers to renovate and expand the traditions of excellence that had been the hallmarks of Venetian glass for centuries. From experiments in new forms, colors, and techniques in the first decades of the century, through the golden years of Italian preeminence in the field at mid-century, to the influx of talented artists from other countries today, Venetian glasswork of the 20th century is a testament to creative spirit and artistic innovation. Presented at the American Craft Museum from fall 2000 through winter 2001, "Venetian Glass: 20th Century Italian Glass from the Olnick Spanu Collection" is one of the first comprehensive overviews of 20th century Italian glass art in the United States, and the first in this country to present a heretofore unknown private collection of Italian glass masterworks. The extraordinary design by Massimo Vignelli coupled with the stunning photographs by Luca Vignelli give life and texture to each piece. Responding to the dearth of publications about 20th century Italian glass art available in the US, this accompanying catalogue--featuring over 200 works--is certain to occupy a significant place in the current revival of interest in glasswork as an art form. Essays by: Marino Barovier, David Revere McFadden, Suzanne K. Frantz, Alfredo Barbini, Laura Diaz de Santillana, Benjamin Moore, Yoichi Ohira, Tobia Scarpa, Thomas Stearns, Lino Tagliapietra, Toots Zynsky, and Susan Sacks.
Hardcover, 9.75 x 9.75 inches, 250 pages, 349 color and 94 b&w illustrations.
