Synopsis: The collective output of the Middle European centres of glass production demonstrates a thoroughly modern approach to the craft. While most other histories of modernism focus on the primacy of pure form, this work chronicles the use of ornament, in a wide variety of styles and techniques, by early 20th century designers. Some of the finest examples of early modern glass in the world feature in this illustrated volume featuring over 200 objects from Brohan's collection of Austrian, Bohemian, and German glass.

From the Publisher: The collective output of the Middle European centers of glass production demonstrates a thoroughly modern approach to the craft. While most other histories of modernism focus on the primacy of pure form, "Glass of the Avant-Garde" chronicles the use of ornament, in a wide variety of styles and techniques, by early twentieth-century designers. The catalogue's appendix, with its table of marks, is especially valuable for collectors and experts, while its stunning color plates and informative texts provide an excellent introduction to modern glass for anyone interested in the field.
