By Jutta-Annette Page, Ignasi Domenech, Alexandra Gaba-Van Dongen, Reino Liefkes, Marie-Laure de Rochebrune, and Hugh Willmott
Venetian glass captivated Renaissance and early modern Europe. In their workshops on the island of Murano, Venetian glassmakers used the finest materials, outstanding skill, and a flair for design to create luxurious glassware for use and display. All over Europe, possession of Venetian glass was regarded as a sign of wealth and sophistication. This lavishly illustrated book was created to accompany a major exhibition of Venetian-style glass at The Corning Museum of Glass.
