In recent decades, glass sculpture has entered American museum collection in unprecedented numbers. A new phenomenon, this reflects new attitudes: an understanding that art-making occurs in glass as suitable for inclusion in museum collections. In this lavishly illustrated volume, Martha Drexler Lynn takes the reader on a tour of glass sculpture in American museums, including the Chrysler Museum of Art. Other museums across the U.S., include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Her survey of these museums reveals their lively interest in glass as an artistic medium, despite an earlier modernist bias. Sculpture, Glass, and American Museums will appeal to collectors, museums, critics, and art historians. Martha Drexler Lynn is a former associate curator in the decorative arts department of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
