René Lalique Perfume Bottles from the the Collection of the Kitazawa Museum of Art

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 to Sunday, January 28, 2018

In nineteenth-century France, as fragrance culture was reaching its height, René Lalique (1860-1945) exquisitely captured the invisible world of “scent” through sophisticated glasswork embellished with flowers and fairies that glimmers in the palm of the hand. Centering on the diverse designs of Lalique’s perfume bottles, this exhibition features about 160 items, including accessories and women’s fashions of the era. Enter the gorgeous world of Lalique, who revolutionized glasswork and the commercial arts and emerged as a central figure of the Art Deco movement.
