For one hundred years, Steuben has been crafting its uniquely beautiful crystal into exquisite decorative and functional works of art. "Glass and Glamour: Steuben's Modern Moment, 1930-1960," an exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York curated by Donald Albrecht, celebrates modern Steuben's defining decades of the 1930s through the 1950s, showcasing its most glamorous and sophisticated creations from that era. The exhibition and this companion volume explore a remarkable chapter in the history of America's premier crystal and the modern movement in art and design in New York City. Donald Albrecht's essay encapsulates that vibrant period and examines how the artistic development of Steuben and New York City are inextricably linked.
