Rene Lalique

The Essential Rene Lalique
by William Warmus
Hardcover
The French artist, Rene Lalique (1860-1945) created art -- notably glass, jewelry, and architectural decoration--so strikingly bold and original that the word "Lalique" became synonymous with luxury. And while few artists leave a living legacy, Rene Lalique did, in the form of the company that still bears his name and is controlled by his family, which has through the generations refined and added to le style Lalique.

The Jewels of Lalique
by Rene Lalique, et al
Hardcover
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 4/9/99
Fans of art nouveau jewelry will find this volume beautiful because of both the extraordinary imagination of Ren Lalique (1860-1945) as well as the quality of the book and its superb photography detailing the finest enameling. 

Country Inns, November/December 1998
In conjunction with a long-awaited, ongoing U.S. exhibition of the artist's jewelry, this comprehensive volume thoughtfully examines Lalique's innovations and immense creativity.

 The name of René Lalique is synonymous with one of the most extraordinary decorative vocabularies of this century. He is known primarily for his masterful work in glass, but he also designed exquisite jewelry that came to epitomize the art nouveau style and adorned the most exotic women of fin-de-siècle Paris. His wonderful creations were populated by a magnificent world of fantastical beings-dragons, serpents, lilies, swans, orchids, and Symbolist women, who metamorphosed into dragonflies, lotus blossoms, or terrifying Medusas. He incorporated an extraordinary range of materials into his pieces, including glass, horn, enamel, precious stones, and crystal, which were selected not only for their aesthetic values but also for their symbolic worth. This book brings together a dazzling array of jewels, many from private collections, and presents them in the context of Lalique's decorative objects and contemporary glasswork. 

About the Author
Yvonne Brunhammer is curator at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She co-curated the eponymous exhibition for which this book was originally published (Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian, Dallas Museum of Art 1998-1999).
