Designing for a New Century: Works on Paper by Lalique and his Contemporaries
Rakow Library, Corning Museum of Glass
In the late 19th century and early 20th century, René Lalique’s jewelry, and then his beautifully designed glass objects and vessels, made him an influential figure in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. His work was acclaimed at the international industrial expositions, particularly the 1900 and 1925 Paris Expositions. Designing for a New Century: Works on Paper by Lalique and His Contemporaries surveys the extraordinary glass art created by Lalique and his European contemporaries, including Maurice Marinot, Auguste Herbst, Emile Gallé,and Val St. Lambert, through design drawings, trade catalogs, period photographs, and rare books from the Rakow Library’s special collections.
