Masters in Glass: Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco
Fifty and Better Summer Session 2
The glasswork of the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods is among the most elegant and extravagant in decorative art history. The prolific glass designers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Emile Gallé, René Lalique and others, exemplify the outstanding contributions made to works of art in glass during this period. Their opulent designs in vases, goblets, lamps, stained glass, and other objets d’art set artistic standards in creativity, beauty and luxury in the art of glassmaking. The course will explore the lives of these artists as trendsetters surrounded by the social and artistic influences of these periods.
