Book - 2011
Rate this:
Acquiring his first Lalique vase in the 1970s, expatriate New Zealander Dr Jack C. Richards has amassed a collection of over 130 vases by the French designer Rene Lalique. Dating from 1913 to 1938, these vases reveal the sophistication of Lalique's work as a designer, his delight in the design possibilities of the natural world, and his graceful transition from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. While Richards acquired his collection overseas, it now resides in Gisborne, New Zealand. In this book, edited by Damian Skinner and with contributions by Carolyn Hatch and Jan and Simon Afford, Richards' Lalique collection becomes the spur to explore an untold story about domestic taste and international decorative arts in New Zealand, as well as covering the story of Rene Lalique's career as a designer, and the network of collectors who cherish Lalique's glass as a major contribution to modern design.
