Loetz Austria 1900: Glas Glass Verre Vetri (German, English, French and Italian Edition)
320 pp. Includes 228 colour illustrations, 61 black-and-white illustrations, 311 catalogue numbers. Text (introduction, history, catalogue) in four languages (German, English, French, Italian); documentation in original wording (German). "The delightful charm of iridised and lustred glass is nowhere more apparent than in the work of the world-famous company of Joh. Loetz Witwe, particularly in those supreme achievements which combine artistic design with manual skill and technical perfection. Initially inspired by Tiffany's glass, the craftsmen of the Bohemian glassworks soon evolved an independent style which owed much to Viennese designers. The present publication includes an introduction and history of the comapny, catalogue and documentation (contemporary reports, technical descriptions, privileges, etc.) and also features an abundantly illustrated colour section which demonstrates the great beauty of this fabulous material. The glassware comes almost entirely from museum collections (Austrian Museum of Applied Art, Vienna, Provincial Museum of Upper Austria, Linz, and Joanneum Provincial Musuem of Styria, department of arts and crafts, Graz), and is reliably documented and dated thanks to the fact that it was acquired at the time."Keywords: FOREIGN LANGUAGE GERMAN ENGLISH FRENCH ITALIAN LANGUAGE ART GLASS REFERENCE ANTIQUES COLLECTIBLES
