The firm of Johann Loetz Witwe- known universally as Loetz-was the most highly regarded art-glass manufacturer in Bohemia in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Like its near contemporary, the American firm Tiffany, Loetz created Jugendstil glass noted for its brilliance of design and rich color schemes. The firm's designers were influenced by their contact with the fin-de-siècle Viennese art scene, in particular the artistic circle around Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser. Loetz pieces ranged in style from iridescent colored glass to monochrome opal glass; all were distinguishedby their superb craftsmanship. This monograph features a representative selection of extraordinary works by Loetz in superb color illustrations. It includes a comprehensive scholarly appendix filled with more than three hundred decorative types developed by Loetz. An accompanying CD-ROM includes nearly five thousand cutout paper patterns, providing an extensive overview of the diversity of the glass manufacturer's production.
