Johann Loetz Witwe, the most productive art glass manufacturer in Bohemia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, owed its success to the sophisticated stained glass work it created in historic designs. Few glassworks have exploited the bluish-green combination of cobalt, copper and iron more successfully than that founded in 1840 by Johann Loetz in Klostermuhle, Bohemia, which was within the Austro-Hungarian empire during most of its period of operation. With artistic claims reinforced by intensive contacts with the Viennese art scene, Loetz built up an extensive and diversified product line, to international renown. Most Loetz glass was commissioned by outside designers, and the best pieces were produced by the union of Loetz and Austrian designers. Many of these designers were aligned with the Vienna Secession Art movement which included Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffman. Loetz combines subtle but innovative forms with very advanced techniques in the use of color and artistic methods such as feathering. This book is filled with examples, the vast majority in color, of Loetz art glass. Many are listed with the name of the form designer, the artist or decorator, and whether or not the example is signed or unsigned. Included is a history of the company, exhibition chronology, and its relationship with artists such as those associated with the Wiener Werkstatte. There's a good section on factory marks and signatures, a section on artist biographies, and even a couple of graphically represented pages on "How to Make Iridescent Glass." The combination of bold simplicity of form with vibrant, lustrous color and organic, pitted surface treatment created art glass of the highest quality. Loetz is fine art glass expressing the vitality and creativity of a most exciting time in the decorative arts.
