Description

An icon in the Art Nouveau movement, Emile Galle (1846-1904) sought to portray the beauty and simplicity of nature in his glass art. His designs, referred to as "poetry in glass," range from fine pottery to jewellery to furniture. Everything Galle produced contains traces of his masterful technique which refl ects his innovativeness as an artist and his skill as a designer. In this rich text, Galle unravels the beauty and ingenuity found within his own work.
