The art of verre églomisé painting, i.e. reverse painting on glass had its heyday between 1550 and 1850. Created in arts-and-crafts centers such as Veneto, Tyrol, and Augsburg, they depicted religious, mythological as well as allegorical subjects and comprised genre, portrait, and land-scape paintings. This volume presents 150 verre églomisé paintings and juxtaposes them with the drawings they were modeled after. Color reproductions of all these works provide for a unique comparison of these two art forms.
