About this title


Gabriel Argy-Rousseau (1885-1953) created some of the most striking and characteristic glassware of the inter-war years. Soon throwing off the Art Nouveau influences of his early work, he invented forms which epitomize the Art Deco style. The career of this remarkable genius is retraced in detail: his education, his inventiveness, his artistic development, his commercial success, and his later difficulties during the Depression years. The process by which his pates de verre were produced, from initial design to final molding, is fully described. And a Catalogue Raissone illustrating almost 350 pieces show the extraordinary diversity of Argy-Rousseau's inspiration. With 528 illustrations, 159 in color.
