The rediscovery of colour
21st of June 2020 – 28th of February 2021
The rediscovery of colour in the 19th century represents a central moment in the history of glass art. The renewed fascination for coloured glass went hand in hand with a growing interest in colour on the part of science and art, which was expressed in theoretical treatises and artistic productions. Based on the colour theories prevailing at the time and newly developed manufacturing processes for coloured glass, the exhibition is dedicated to the reinterpretation of colour in 19th and 20th century glass art.
