Venetian Glass: 20th Century Italian Glass from the Olnick Spanu Collection
Venetian Glass: 20th Century Italian Glass from the
Italian art glass of the twentieth 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 twentieth century is a testament to creative spirit and artistic innovation. Presented at the American Craft Museum from fall 2000 through winter 2001, Venetian Glass: Twentieth Century Italian Glass from the Olnick Spanu Collection is one of the first comprehensive overviews of twentieth-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.

Venetian Glass Mosaics: 1860-1917
Venetian Glass Mosaics:
This is the first comprehensive book on Venetian mosaics of the nineteenth century. It illustrates work by both the Salviati Company and the Venice and Murano Glass and Mosaic Company. A carefully researched work, Venetian Glass addresses the revival of the art of Venetian mosaic making in the mid-nineteenth century and discusses the complicity of both Antonio Salviati and Sir Austen Henry Layard in that revival. It is a comprehensive work, illustrating Salviati's earliest surviving mosaics, the 1860 mosaic decoration of the Royal Mausoleum at Frogmore and continuing through his company's last commission, the Stanford Memorial Church in Palo Alto, California. The recovered art of Venetian mosaic in the late-nineteenth- and early twentieth-century is now seen as one of the most important aesthetic achievements of the Victorian-Edwardian era. Neglected and unappreciated for decades, surviving mosaics are being cleaned and restored worldwide. Whether highly visible monuments in major cities or small

Dale Chihuly presents the most flamboyant and whimsical of all Chihuly's series. The voluptuous glass pieces, shown in full-color, were inspired by Art Deco Venetian glass during Chihuly's Fullbright scholarship in Venice. With collaboration between Chihuly and glass master Lino Tagliapietra, the series evolved over a period of only seven blowing sessions. Though at their core, the Venetians are vessels of some sort, they explode outward when wrapped with spiraling coils, leaves, feathers, and claws in startling color combinations. Chihuly chronicles the evolution of the series in his reflective essay included in this volume. His bold and colorful drawings illustrate how the artist guided his team to make these pieces. This oversized book offers a breathtaking view of Chihuly's Venetians, which, more than any other of his series, embody personality and individual character. This book begins with an essay by Ron Glowen. 1989 Hardcover; 10" x 14" ; 132 pages, 61 color reproductions.

Venetian Glass of the 1890s: Salviati at Stanford University
Venetian Glass of the 1890s: Salviati at Stanford
An introductoy essay explore the art of Venetian glass blowing, a tradition that goes back more than a thousand years. This art fell into decline during the eighteenth century and collapsed with the fall of the Venetian Republic. in 1797. The revival of glass making in the middle of the nineteenth century was largely due to Antonio Salviati (1816-1890), a lawyer from Vicenza. As production increased, Salviati glass could be found in London, Paris, and New York. The Stanford family first became involved with the Salviati firm in 1883, and the collection was eventually donated to the University as an expression of gratitude for the extensive mosaic commissions from its co-founder, Jane Lathrop Stanford.This sumptuously illustrated book illustrates and describes the 245 pieces of Salviati glass that were presented the Leland Stanford Junior Museum at the end of the nineteenth century. It accompanies an exhibition at the Iris & B. Gerard Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, California.
