Dino Martens (1894 – 1970) was first a painter, although he will be best remembered for his glass design. He exhibited his paintings at the Biennale di Venezia between 1924 and 1930. Upon his return from the African War in 1939, he became artistic director of the Venetian glass factory Aureliano Toso. From 1946 to 1960 Martens designed an incredible series of works for Toso. Using traditional Venetian techniques, he was able to obtain strikingly original effects combined with particularly daring asymmetric shapes, marked by difficulty of execution.

Description: Hard bound with dust jacket. 204 pages. Profusely illustrated. The first complete catalogue of all work in glass. reproduced in 355 historical archive photographs. Text in English, German & Italian. The definitive catalogue of Dino Martens’ work in glass.
