The Glass Ark. Animals in the Pierre Rosenberg Collection Will Open Soon
Le Stanze del Vetro
The Glass Ark. Animals in the Pierre Rosenberg Collection, curated by Giordana Naccari and Cristina Beltrami, will open to the public at LE STANZE DEL VETRO on 22 March 2021. The exhibition will retrace – in an original and fascinating way – the history of 20th-century Murano glass from an unusual angle: the glass animal. The over 750 works of art – representing, among others, elephants, hippos, cats, giraffes, bears, parrots, fish, turtles, foxes and tiny, lamp-worked life-sized insects – belong to the personal collection that Pierre Rosenberg, art historian and former Director/President of the Louvre in Paris, put together over thirty years.
