1912-1930 Murano Glass and the Venice Biennale


This volume examines the significant period which saw Murano glass gradually finding its place at the Venice Biennale, first through the artists choosing to use this material for their works, and later through the glassworks, sometimes drawing upon the creativity of painters and sculptors. The catalogue, which is the result of extensive bibliographic and documentary research in the Biennale historical archive, as well as in public and private archives, features period photographs, drawings, and documents, many previously unpublished, showcasing the works exhibited in the various Biennales, focusing, in particular, over 130 works by artists and glassmakers who played a leading role in a historical moment marking the entry of a so-called minor art into the realm of major arts.
