Doctoral candidate Karli Wurzelbacher published "19th-Century Tinsel Painting Meets Modernism" in the 2017 Journal of Glass Studies, a publication of the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. The article is drawn from Wurzelbacher’s dissertation research on reverse painting on glass. Mostly considered a type of folk art, the article states “tinsel painting was an American form of reverse painting on glass that incorporated metallic foil.” This combination made for colorful, shimmering works on glass. UD's Center for Material Culture Studies supported Wurzelbacher’s research with a travel grant and a publication subvention. The text is available in print and via JSTOR (a JSTOR subscription is required to read the full article).
