NameStained Glass - Masterpieces of the Modern Era
DescriptionThe twentieth century, with its revolution in architectural methods and materials, opened up new possibilities for stained glass. During the last thirty years, a great many projects have been created in stained glass all over the world, in both new buildings and historical churches and institutions. Studies of this phenomenon have been rare until now, and this book is a pioneer in the survey of this fascinating field. From the magnificent Art Nouveau ceilings of Parisian department stores, to exuberant designs from the Islamic world, and further still to the temples and palaces of India, Indonesia and Japan, stained glass becomes a medium by which the traditional and the avant-garde come together to create sumptuous decoration. Here too are striking designs by modern artists like Marc Chagall and Fernand Léger, and glass put to skilful and subtle use by master architects such as Antoni Gaudí and Frank Lloyd Wright. 31.50 x 27.00 cm Hardback 216pp 247 Illustrations, 246 in colour First published 2007
