Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
10/15/2013
If fans of blown-glass art ever needed confirmation that the medium has moved beyond the constraints of the decorative arts category, this comprehensive survey of Dale Chihuly's work certainly furnishes it. Replete with contextual features and critical essays by fine art museum curators Charbonneau (coeditor, Decorative Arts and Design: The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' Collection), Nathalie Bondil, Timothy Anglin Burgard, Gerald W.R. Ward, and Davira S. Taragin, as well as a chronology, notes, and hundreds of colorful full-bleed photographs, this exhibition catalog from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts provides the fullest view of the artist's work to date. Organized by the type of Chihuly's series of blown glassworks including neon, baskets, seaforms, macchia, Persians, Venetians, putti, ikebana, floats, chandeliers and towers, and mille fiori, this 14" by 10" volume covers a rich set of vibrant work inspired predominantly by natural forms and makes the most of its large format. The documentation is superb, the scope is expansive, and the text is expertly presented. VERDICT An outstanding choice for any Chihuly aficionado.—Dan McClure, Pacific Northwest Coll. of Art Lib., Portland, OR
