Description
Although renowned for his work as a glassmaker, Émile Gallé (1846–1904) did not produce a significant number of lamps until the turn of the 20th century; it was only in the last years of his life that the master craftsman realized the full aesthetic potential of electric light for revealing the beauty of his opalescent glass. In the context of art nouveau, Gallé's creations reached their apogee in this brief period, during which he adapted the shape of much of his glassware to its organic theme: vases decorated with lilies became lily-shaped lamps, while ripened gourds pendent on their vines glowed from within at the touch of a switch. This beautifully photographed catalogue describes the full range of light fixtures produced by the Gallé cristallerie, from those made during his lifetime to those manufactured for three decades after his death.
