René Lalique: Enchanted by Glass

Item #: 9780300205114

By Kelley Jo Elliott
With foreword by Karol Wight and contributions by Elizabeth Everton and Tina Oldknow

René Lalique, a master artist and designer of early 20th-century France, initially achieved fame for his jewelry creations, which were widely admired and collected. He began experimenting with glass in the 1890s and was so captivated by the material that he spent the rest of his career working with it exclusively. The glass objects that he designed, such as vases, ashtrays, tableware, and other household accessories, are now considered iconic representations of the art nouveau and art deco movements.

This publication traces Lalique's distinguished career. Hundreds of color photographs, including many dramatic, full-page images, spotlight individual pieces of glass and original wax and plaster models selected from the extensive collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. The book also draws on the Museum's wealth of archival material on Lalique, including design drawings and photographs. This strikingly beautiful and informative volume is a testament to the singular allure of his enchanting glass.

This publication accompanies the exhibition "René Lalique: Enchanted by Glass," showing at The Corning Museum of Glass from May 17, 2014, until January 4, 2015. The exhibition brings together glass, jewelry, production molds, and design drawings by Lalique, dating from about 1893 to the artist's death in 1945.
