Characterized by smooth lines, geometric shapes, and bright colors, the Art Deco glass movement began, in part, as a reaction against the elaborate and ornate style of Art Nouveau in the late 19th century. Art Deco Glass from the Huchthausen Collection includes over 100 works in glass from the collection of studio glass artist David Huchthausen. The exhibition features early 20th-century glass by iconic Art Deco studios such as René Lalique, Daum Frères, Pierre d’Avesn, Charles Schneider, Muller Frères, Marius-Ernest Sabino, Steuben Glass Works, and many others. Organized by the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA.
