Janine Bloch-Dermant, internationally renowned authority on the history of glass from 1860 onwards has published several books on the subject. 

Gabriel Argy-Rousseau (1885-1953) created some of the most striking and characteristic glassware of the inter war years. Soon throwing off the Art Nouveau influences of his early work, he invented forms which epitomize the Art Deco style. 

The career of this remarkable genius is retraced in detail: his education, his inventiveness, his artistic development, his commercial success, and his later difficulties during the Depression years. This primary monograph on the artist brings his oeuvre back to full, sparkling life. 

With 528 illustrations, 159 in color.
