This beautiful catalogue and the exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts are a breathtaking tribute to design, color and light from a collection of hand-blown Murano glass like no other in the world. New York collectors Nancy Olnick and Georgio Spanu express their singular passion for glass created on the island of Murano, off the coast of Venice, Italy, by diligently choosing most of their pieces from the 20th century--the most significant period in the history of Muranese glass. Of the 500 extraordinary glassworks that live in harmony in the Olnick Spanu Collection, almost 300 have been selected for the exhibition and are published in this book.
