The spring exhibition at LE STANZE DEL VETRO is dedicated to the great French artist who paved the way to much contemporary glassmaking. It is the first international tribute to this great glass craftsman.
The exhibition highlights the incredible originality of the French glassmaker-artist with more than 200 works and numerous preparatory drawings, from his first enamelled works to glass pieces personally blown and shaped with extraordinary skill and endless inventive capacity.
The exhibition ‘Maurice Marinot. The Glass, 1911-1934′ recounts the fundamental role of Marinot in the history of modern and contemporary glass, yet to be thoroughly acknowledged by the public.
LE STANZE DEL VETRO is both a cultural project and an exhibition space on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore and it is dedicated to the study and the exhibition of modern and contemporary forms of the glass art.
Free entrance to LE STANZE DEL VETRO and guided tours, educational workshops and special events for families are scheduled for each exhibition.
