Venini Glass. Its History, Artists and Techniques. Catalogue 1921-2007
One of the most important changes in the 20th century has been the evolution of decorative arts from ‘craftsmen’ to ‘art’: nowadays glassware has gained total rcognition in museums and public opinion.
The extraordinary ability and originality in techniques between the late 40’s and the 50’s and the great success of Venini’s design was surely one of the principal reasons for the international praise for Venetian glass: new exceptional techniques and outstanding creativity since 1925 have placed Venini’s masterpieces with the highest artistic expressions of art in our century.
This edition features the famous ‘blue copybook’ of Casa Venini, the private firm diary in which information on all glassware was entered.
