Vittorio Zecchin: Glass for Cappellin and Venini

Kunstsammlungen der Veste Coburg Museum, Germany15 May 2020 – 10 January 2021

The exhibition focuses on Vittorio Zecchin’s extremely refined glass production, that was preeminent in the Murano of his time.

 

For those who missed the exhibition at LE STANZE DEL VETRO in 2017, Vittorio Zecchin: Glass for Cappellin and Venini is now open at the Kunstsammlungen der Veste Coburg Museum in Germany.

It will be possible to enjoy about 90 ethereal hand-blown glass works designed by Zecchin in the 1920s, when he was appointed Artistic Director first at the V.S.M. Cappellin Venini & Co. glassware company and then at the M.V.M. Cappellin & Co.

Zecchin’s glass production was preeminent in the Murano of his time, both for its classical proportions and rigorous shapes, as well as for its remarkable colours, mostly delicate but at times intense and bright shades of yellow, green, blue and amethyst.
