Salviati and the Antique

Like many other artists, glassmakers of the late 19th century were inspired by the splendor of ancient glass made accessible to them through recent excavations.  Drawing on various qualities of ancient glass—techniques, motifs, shapes, and colors—Salviati & Co. in Venice produced stunning new creations. By pairing ancient glass objects with their 19th-century counterparts, this exhibition of approximately 14 objects reveals the ancient sources for Salviati & Co. artists and their creative responses to earlier glassmaking techniques and aesthetics.

Date: 10/26/14

Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
