9781576840047: Chihuly Persians

Classical Greece, Persia, Byzantium, the Islamic world, Venice and the art nouveau style can all be seen as sources for Chihuly's Persian series, argues art historian Tina Oldknow in "An Ancient Legacy," her insightful essay in "Chihuly: Persians." Oldknow reviews the accomplishments of Chihuly's artistic ancestors, from the anonymous makers of Egyptian cave-formed vessels to Louis Comfort Tiffany. Particular attention is paid to his search for new forms, by which the author suggests a comparison to Persian gardens and carpets.

Book Description PORTLAND PRESS, United States, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Classical Greece, Persia, Byzantium, the Islamic world, Venice, and the art nouveau style can all be seen as sources for Chihuly s Persian series, argues art historian Tina Oldknow in An Ancient Legacy , her insightful essay in Chihuly Persians . However, she concludes by saying, that the impetus is the marvellous -- la merveille -- that other, magical world where the source of wonder and delight reside. . Oldknow sets the stage for Chihuly Persians by reviewing the accomplishments of his artistic ancestors from the anonymous Egyptian makers of core-formed vessels from 1500BC to Louis Comfort Tiffany. She then goes on to discuss in contemporary aesthetic terms Chihuly s romantic Persian series, which began in 1986 as a search for new forms. Particular attention is paid to their use in the architectural context, and the author suggests a comparison with Persian gardens and carpets. Oldknow s thoughtful essay is illustrated by stunning examples of Chihuly s glass works with their swirling colours and exotic forms. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781576840047
