take on “new art”, this taste for new and exotic art also spanned various
disciplines. Glass art was no exception, with French glassworkers Emile
Gallé and the
Daum brothers at the forefront of their artistic fields. Dive into the
evocative world of Art Nouveau glass in this exhibition, which brings pieces
