"Two introductory essays trace the development of Italian art glass within the context of European glassmaking as a whole and examine the intimate world of glass manufacturing on Murano, with its unique combination of tradition and innovation. The superb color plates reproduce work by all the major designers and manufacturers. Italian art glass is not synonymous with Murano, however, and a notable feature of the book is the marvelous work produced in Milan by Erwin Burger and the firm Fontana Arte."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This book is for art market researchers at all levels. A brief overview of the global art market and its major stakeholders precedes an analysis of the various sales venues (auction, commercial gallery, etc.). Library research skills are reviewed, and advanced methods are explored in a chapter devoted to basic market research. Because the monetary value of artwork cannot be established without reference to the aesthetic qualities and art historical significance of our subject works, two substantial chapters detail the processes involved in researching and documenting the fine and decorative arts, respectively, and provide annotated bibliographies. Methods for assigning values for art objects are explored, and sources of price data, both in print and online, are identified and described in detail. In recent years, art historical scholarship increasingly has addressed issues related to the history of art and its markets: a chapter on resources for the historian of the art market offers a wide range of sources. Finally, provenance and art law are discussed, with particular reference to their relevance to dealers, collectors, artists and other art market stakeholders.

Since the thirteenth century the Venetian island of Murano has been the centre of Italian glass production. Early in the twentieth century Murano re-established its dominance in the world of art glass by mixing traditional craft with the innovative designs of modern artists and sculptors. Anzolo Fuga played a prominent role in its renaissance. A multi-faceted artist from a glass-making dynasty, Fuga created designs for A. V. E M. Arte Vetraria Muranese (Murano Art Glass House) that are, as author Rosa Barovier Mentasti writes 'extraordinarily modern for the time and possess a chromatic and decorative impact that still appear exceptional today. His works speak the language of the 1950s and '60s with such freshness that they do not look out of date in the most contemporary of environments'. Anzolo Fuga is the first monograph on this exceptional designer, whose works are collected worldwide. It is illustrated with over 170 colour photographs of spectacular objects never seen before. Along with a biography of the artist, Anzolo Fuga presents a catalogue of his works for A. V. E. M. Rosa Barovier Mentasti was born in 1948 into one of the oldest Muranese glass working families. She has been the curator or co-curator of many prestigious exhibitions in Italy and abroad since 1977. Aside from writing articles for numerous magazines and material on specialised glass techniques for reference books, Mentasti is the author of two important works: Venetian Glass from the Middle Ages to Today and Venetian Glass 1890-1990. SELLING POINTS: The first book to be published on Anzolo Fuga Includes a complete catalogue of Fuga's designs for the Italian art glass manufacturer A. V E. M. Fuga's works can be found in collections worldwide such as the Kunstmuseum, Düsseldorf, The Corning Museum of Glass and the Fondazione di Venezia as well as numerous private collections 176 colour & 6 b/w illustrations

Poetry. "I am spending my 39th year practicing uncreativity. On Friday, September 1, 2000, I began retyping the day's NEW YORK TIMES word for word, letter for letter, from the upper left hand corner to the lower right hand corner, page by page." With these words, Kenneth Goldsmith embarked upon a project which he termed "uncreative writing", that is: uncreativity as a constraint-based process; uncreativity as a creative practice. By typing page upon page, making no distinction between article, editorial and advertisement, disregarding all typographic and graphical treatments, Goldsmith levels the daily newspaper. DAY is a monument to the ephemeral, comprised of yesterday's news, a fleeting moment concretized, captured, then reframed into the discourse of literature. "When I reach 40, I hope to have cleansed myself of all creativity"-Kenneth Goldsmith.
