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.
