Glass + Glamour: Steuben's Modern Moment, 1930-1960

Glass + Glamour: Steuben's Modern Moment, 1930-1960 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To celebrate its centenary, Steuben is planning a major exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York--together with this companion book--showcasing its most glamorous and sophisticated creations from the '30s through the '60s. The exhibition and book explore a remarkable chapter in the history of both America's premier crystal and the modern movement in art and design in New York City. Monumental bowls, stemware, and exquisitely sculpted and copper-wheel-engraved pieces from Steuben's elite mid-century lines are featured in this stunning volume. A few of the highlights include Sidney Waugh's famous Gazelle Bowl and George Thompson's Galapagos Bowl, as well as works by such celebrated artists as Salvador Dall and Isamu Noguchi. Black-and-white photographs of Steuben glass masterworks are combined with vintage photographs and ephemera from Steuben's archive that capture the look and feel of a glittering era in New York City's life and art.

Book News Annotation:

This catalogue was created to accompany an exhibition of the same name at the Museum of the City of New York in 2003-2004 which coincided with the centenary of Steuben glass. An essay describes the history of the company, its founder, and the design and marketing principles that made Steuben a household name. Glass from 1930-1960 as well as many historic photos of the company and its employees are illustrated with b&w plates. Not indexed.
