Émile Gallé, personal collection

Gallé, the poet of Art Nouveau, needs no introduction. Virtuosity and inventiveness are the hallmarks of this Nancy-born artist, as witness the glassware presented at Drouot by the auction house Beaussant & Lefèvre. A collection of nine pieces from the master glassmaker’s personal collection will be up for auction for the first time.
