Synopsis : Classical Greece, Persia, Byzantium, the Islamic world, Venice, and the art nouveau style can all be seen as sources for Chihuly's Persian series, argues art historian Tina Oldknow in 'An Ancient Legacy', her insightful essay in 'Chihuly Persians'. However, she concludes by saying, that "the impetus is the marvellous -- la merveille -- that other, magical world where the source of wonder and delight reside.". Oldknow sets the stage for 'Chihuly Persians' by reviewing the accomplishments of his artistic ancestors from the anonymous Egyptian makers of core-formed vessels from 1500BC to Louis Comfort Tiffany. She then goes on to discuss in contemporary aesthetic terms Chihuly's romantic Persian series, which began in 1986 as a search for new forms. Particular attention is paid to their use in the architectural context, and the author suggests a comparison with Persian gardens and carpets. Oldknow's thoughtful essay is illustrated by stunning examples of Chihuly's glass works with their swirling colours and exotic forms.
