"Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano" by Crawford Alexander Mann
Venetian glass captivated Americans in the late 19th century. Many leading American artists, including John Singer Sargent and James McNeill Whistler, sojourned in Venice between 1860 and 1915 and were enthralled by the exquisite beauty of Venetian glass, collecting hand-blown objects and depicting Venetian glassmakers in their own works. This beautifully illustrated book explores the splendors of Venetian glass and its influence on American ideas of beauty and craftsmanship.
