Verre Eglomise from the French term meaning gilded glass is a decorative technique in which the back side of the glass is gilded with gold or metal leaf. The technique of back-painting glass actually dates back to pre-Roman eras. One of the key historical periods of the art was in Italy during the 13th to 16th centuries.
Schiele’s experiments with this intricate process were formative in developing her distinct aesthetic identity. She applies her knowledge of different art techniques to this training to develop new approaches to the creation of Verre églomisé art pieces.

The geometrical composition is blended with very organic drawing, that shimmers with all shades of copper-gold, violet pink and pastels colors. The visual experience is changing according to the light, as same as the sky was changing above the sea that afternoon in Møn.
