About

Glass animals

The “The Glass Ark. Animals in the Pierre Rosenberg Collection” exhibition at “Le Stanze del Vetro” 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.
