The exhibition, Glass of the Avant-Garde: From Vienna Secession to Bauhaus, includes almost 200 examples of early twentieth-century glass from Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic set against the background of changing political circumstances. The Torsten Bröhan Collection, one of the most important collections of early modern glass in the world, was recently acquired by the Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas in Madrid and this is its first ever U.S. tour, after which it will return to Spain. A fully illustrated calalogue will accompany the exhibition.
