Art Deco Glass from the David Huchthausen Collection

On View May 24, 2024 - September 2, 2024

Drawn from a private collection, this exhibition will include early 20th century glass by iconic European and American Art Deco studios such as René Lalique, Daum Frères, Charles Schneider, Muller Frères, Steuben Glass Works, and many others. Characterized by smooth lines, geometric shapes, and bright colors, the Art Deco glass movement began, in part, as a reaction against the elaborate and ornate style of Art Nouveau in the late 19th century. Economic austerity generated by World War I launched Art Deco into popularity, with artists, designers, and architects throughout the world adopting the style.
