Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Glass: The Toledo Museum of Art?

extraordinary collection of glass work and art  Feb 13, 2007
The Toledo Museum of Art was founded in 1901 by Edward Drummond Libbey shortly after he moved his thriving glassmaking business to the Ohio city from Boston. Along with the Old Master paintings, Egyptian antiquities, and other types of more or less conventional art and relics sought by most museums in this period, the Toledo Museum also concertedly engaged in collecting many pieces of art in glass in accordance with Libbey's interests and wishes. About two years ago, a Glass Pavilion for the storage and exhibition of the sizable and growing glass collection was added to the original Museum. As the numerous skillful color photographs demonstrate, the Museum's Pavilion has many choice, exquisite pieces from all eras and places around the world ranging from the utilitarian to the sheerly aesthetic. This art book tied in with the opening of the new Pavilion arranges much of the collection chronologically from the ancient Mediterannean cultures through the Renaissance and Baroque to the early 20th century with the insertion of one chapter on glass in the Islamic world. A last chapter displays art glass works by artists of the past few decades. Many readers will be struck by how some of the artists, especially from more modern and contemporary times, use glass as a medium for sculpture with dramatic shapes and colors.
