Lalique's fascination with glass as a jeweler and an industrialist is told in this traveling exhibition from the Corning Museum of Glass through the objects that he designed and made. Rene Lalique: Enchanted by Glass documents the stylistic and artistic changes that swept through France during its Third Republic. The exhibition displays glass objects from the end of the 19th century through the 1940s, including rare design drawings, jewelry, medallions, perfume bottles, automobile mascots, tableware, desk and smoking accessories, decorative vases, statuettes, and working molds and models. All objects are from the comprehensive collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. Curated by Kelley Elliott , curatorial assistant of modern glass, with the assistance of Tina Oldknow, curator of modern glass, this traveling exhibition from The Corning Museum of Glass includes approximately 250 objects.
