Surveying the full range of distinctive decorative works created by celebrated French designer Lalique (1860-1945), this well-illustrated catalogue documents more than 250 objects drawn primarily from the museum's collection and from the holdings of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, including brooches, pendants, necklaces, combs, bracelets, tiaras and other jewelry pieces based on naturalistic plant and animal motifs as well as glass vases, goblets and perfume bottles and examples of Lalique's architectural pressed glass designs. Ten essays fully explore the artist's life and career, discussing his stylistic and technical innovations and addressing such topics as the influence of Japanese art on his work, the significance of his preparatory drawings, his jewelry designs for the theater and his impact on French fashion trends. Please note that a French-language edition of this title is available (see Worldwide 900419).
