Suntory Museum of Art / The Radiance of Stillness and Motion: Bohemian Glass from the Collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague

MORE INFORMATION

August 2(Sat) - September 28(Sun)

Glass production began in Bohemia (an area corresponding roughly to the Czech Republic today) in the thirteenth century. Bohemian crystal developed in the latter half of the seventeenth century. Its shapes, which suggested carved rock crystal, became highly popular, even dislodging Venetian glass from its once-dominant position. In the early nineteenth century, research on ways to add colors and painted decorations led to the development of increasingly colorful glass. In contemporary glass art, Bohemian glass is the world leader in glass sculpture. This exhibition includes about 170 examples from 600 years of Bohemian glass from the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.
