Web Description: 
Despret was an engineer and an expert in industrial glassmaking. Inside his factory, he kept a studio where he made artistic objects in pâte de verre. Despret was inspired by the discovery, in the 1870s, of hundreds of Hellenistic Greek terracotta figures at the ancient site of Tanagra, in Boeotia, and he made a series of them in glass.
