Magnificent, really choice examples of murrine represent the 19th and early 20th century, some of them with designs by Hans Stoltenberg-Lerche. The lively 1930s and 1940s are notable for the glass produced by Barovier, followed by the colourful and glowing 1950s and 1960s objects of Dino Martens, Ansolo Fuga, Fulvio Bianconi et al. Very rare glass objects from the collaboration between Fucina degli Angeli and artists of international standing, including Cocteau, Picasso and Kokoschka, round off this documentary encompassing more than a century of Murano art glass.

A historical survey of Murano glass, thanks to one of the largest and most important American private collections. Superlative object photographs, contemporary documents, fresh information on glass artists and producers, a marks table and a glossary provide invaluable information.

The earliest evidence of glass-making on the Venetian island of Murano dates from the 7th or 8th century; for hundreds of years it was known as the source for the finest glass in the world, where dynastic guilds carefully guarded their secrets for making lenses and mirrors. This beautifully illustrated, pocketable book traces the history of Murano glass, including the formation and consolidation of the industry there, its golden age in the 16th century, its decline in the 19th century after Napoleon's reforms, and its rebirth in the modern era.
