René Lalique: Enchanted by Glass
As a successful jeweler René Lalique (French, 1860–1945) experimented with glass in his designs, which eventually led to a career in which he fully embraced the material. His aesthetic choices informed the styles of Art Nouveau and Art Deco in France, and the objects he created have become iconic reflections of these periods. See glass, jewelry, production molds, and design drawings by Lalique on view in the Enchanted by Glass exhibition, May 17, 2014 - January 4, 2015.
