About

Jacques Grüber (January 25, 1870 - December 15, 1936, France) was among the best-known French artists of the Jugendstil and Art Déco. He was the master glassworker in Nancy and was sought out by Louis Majorelle, Eugène Corbin, and Albert Bergeret as well as the Chamber of Commerce, the Exelsior brasserie, the Crédit Lyonnais bank, the Magasins Réunis, etc.

The graphic and pictorial quality of his work, inspired by naturalism as well as symbolism, is a veritable synthesis of the glassmaking techniques of the time.
