Marc Heiremans: Seguso Vetri d´Arte, Glass Objects from Murano (1932-1973)
Askan Quittenbaum, specialist on Murano Glass at Quittenbaum Art Auctions, recommends the recently published reference book on the important Venetian glass makers Seguso Vetri d'Arte. Marc Heiremans, who spent years assessing the archives of Seguso Vetri d'Arte, provides new important insights for collectors, auctioneers and scientists. A large number of sketches and photographs, never released before, are published and help re-evaluating Seguso's items.
Hans Christiansen. A Retrospective
Member of the Künstlerkolonie in Darmstadt, Germany, from the very beginning.
"I understand my occupation as an artist to be as general as possible: I wish to be able to paint a portrait, but also to invent a piece of furniture; I draw caricatures, but also wallpapers, posters, originals of any kind of printing method, I design glass windows, but sometimes also a screen to be made in leather. My motto is: 'Depiction of characteristics in shape and colour according to their function and technique.'" Hans Christiansen, 1898.
