In Art signed Gallé Tiny Esveld, in collaboration with Clémentine L. Diepen, has cast new light on the renowned French designer Emile Gallé (1846-1904). Esveld raises a number of points which many authors prefer to pass over, such as the important role that Gallé's father played in the production of his ceramics and the involvement of Emile's wife Henriëtte and their daughters after Gallé's death in 1904.
Almost 90% of glass signed Gallé which comes on the market today dates from the period after his early death.
Gallé's oeuvre of ceramics, glass and luxury furniture, which was often inspired by nature, is examined and explained by means of concise texts, informative descriptions and hundreds of photographs. Esveld also draws on her expertise to illuminate Gallé's often innovative techniques and production methods.
With Art signed Gallé, Tiny Esveld has added to the scope of the literature about Emile Gallé from her own perspective. In its 300 pages, she transports the reader back to the era and the city in which Gallé lived and worked. This is a coffee table book, a popular work of reference and a practical guide in one.
