Rene Lalique, a master artist and designer of early 20th-century France, initially achieved fame for his jewellery creations that were admired and collected. He began experimenting with glass in the 1890s, and was so captivated by the material that he spent the rest of his career working with it exclusively. This title traces Lalique's career.
