Maurice Marinot: Glass, 1911–34

Le Stanze del Vetro, Venice

25 Mar - 28 Jul 2019

A member of the Fauves in Paris at the start of the 20th century, Maurice Marinot stopped painting after a revelatory visit to the Viard brothers’ glassworks in 1911. He became one of the most influential modernists in the medium – one of the first to use bubbles and other accidents of the glassblowing process as intentional elements of his work. This exhibition includes more than 200 glass pieces, as well as preparatory drawings. Find out more from the Stanze del Vetro’s website.
