Exhibition on San Giorgio Maggiore Island, Venice, 18 April - 31 July 2016

This exhibition catalogue presents over 300 works from the collection of the MAK in Vienna and private collections. It focuses for the first time on the history of glassmaking in Austria from 1900 to 1937, a period spanning the last decades of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the First Republic.
In the early 20th century, a group of young architects, designers, and fine arts and architecture students developed a special interest in the process of glassmaking. Many of them were to win fame as leading figures in Viennese Modernism, such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Joseph Maria Olbrich, Leopold Bauer, Otto Prutscher, Oskar Strnad, Oswald Haerdtl and Adolf Loos. These collaborations and the introduction of their innovations to production created the style found in the Wiener Werkstätte or in the Austrian Werkbund.
