Emile Galle’s life as it relates to art glass and his achievements in the field.  Most people want to know why Galle art glass is so much more valuable than almost all other art glass. The short answer is that it is valuable because it is in demand. The true answer can be found in the history of his work. If you study Emile Galle then you will learn all about his experimentation with lost decoration and finishing techniques. Today we all know that glass can be a form of artistic expression. Back in the 1870s when Galle got started there was virtually no glass being made just for the sake of art. The “art glass” that was being made was not especially interesting or inventive. Galle introduced bold colours and subject matters and combined them to make expressive and telling objects of art.
