San Giovanni Lupatoto :. Arsenale Editrice, 1992. Hardcover. Dustjacket. 208 pp.- Superb large-scale colour photographs, including many of previously unpublished rare pieces in private collections, illustrate the unrivalled quality of 20th century glassmaking in Venice. A center of glassmaking in Europe for more than a thousand years, Venice in the early 19th century had been eclipsed by more industrial glassmakers. Yet by focusing on superb artisanal pieces, Venice again became a leader in the production of art glass throughout the 20th century. Murano-born Rosa Barovier Mentasti, a world-class authority on the history of glass, here presents a gorgeously illustrated survey of modern glass in Venice, with more than 200 vivid color photos and page-filling closeups."The Venetian art of glass-blowing, the longest-standing tradition of its kind in Europe, is spotlighted in this lovely, eye-catching volume, itself a work of art. In her absorbing text accompanying some 200 color plates, Mentasti, a Venice-born historian of glass, follows a succession of styles from Art Nouveau through the Viennese Secession, Art Deco, the 1930s Novecento style with its transparent, simple forms, to the burst of creativity in the '60s and '70s and the contemporary return to color and representation. Gianni Toso's satiric figurines, Alessandro Pianon's blown-glass chicks with iron feet, Luciano Vistosi's human skull sculpted out of green crystal and Napoleone Martinuzzi's spirited pony in coral glass stand out among pieces that achieve dazzling effects through polychrome, enameling, latticework, iridescence and other techniques."
