Additional Information

In recent decades, glass sculpture has entered American museum collection in unprecedented numbers. A new phenomenon, this reflects new attitudes: an understanding that art-making occurs in glass as suitable for inclusion in museum collections.

In this lavishly illustrated volume, Martha Drexler Lynn takes the reader on a tour of glass sculpture in American museums. She covers 26 permanent collections across the U.S., including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Her survey of these museums reveals their lively interest in glass as an artistic medium, despite an earlier modernist bias.

Sculpture, Glass, and American Museums will appeal to collectors, museums, critics, and art historians. Covering the work of such artists as Christopher Wilmarth, Howard Ben Tré, Lynda Benglis, and Stanislav Libenský, Lynn paints a portrait of a medium that is rapidly becoming an indispensable component of contemporary museum collections.

This publication was commissioned by the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass.

Martha Drexler Lynn writes with the voice of a fiction writer and the mind of a scholar. She takes us through the issues common to all sculpture over time and then visits 26 museum collections and discusses how sculpture made of glass found its way into those collections. This book will be interesting not only to art historians and scholars but to those interested in how works of art find their way into American museums. Museums studied range from the Metropolitan and the MFA Boston to excellent regional museums.

A must read for contemporary art collectors interested in learning about sculpture made of glass.
This book's photography supports the authors narrative message: 1. Glass sculpture is beautiful.

2. Glass sculpture has a surprisingly extensive record of having been presented in fine art museums.
One star because I found this book to be one-fifth interesting and four-fifths boring. I'm a glass and sculpture collector, so I'll agree that my opinion is subjective, perhaps.
