Magnificent, really choice examples of murrine represent the 19th and early 20th century, some of them with designs by Hans Stoltenberg-Lerche. The lively 1930s and 1940s are notable for the glass produced by Barovier, followed by the colourful and glowing 1950s and 1960s objects of Dino Martens, Ansolo Fuga, Fulvio Bianconi et al. Very rare glass objects from the collaboration between Fucina degli Angeli and artists of international standing, including Cocteau, Picasso and Kokoschka, round off this documentary encompassing more than a century of Murano art glass.

A historical survey of Murano glass, thanks to one of the largest and most important American private collections. Superlative object photographs, contemporary documents, fresh information on glass artists and producers, a marks table and a glossary provide invaluable information.
