Parli Italiano? Masters of Italian Art Glass

April 7 – May 29, 2022

Michael Reid OBJECT is delighted to announce the launch of Parli Italiano? Masters of Italian Art Glass, an ouvre collection of the artists that shaped Murano glass art history. Included in the collection are maestros like Tyra Lundgren, Flavio Poli, Dino Martens, and of course Luigi Onesto.

Each artwork in this collection has been specifically chosen to map the pioneering techniques and innovation experienced on the Murano island between the 1950s to the 1980s, by far glass art’s most revolutionary years. It is these artists that have shaped the history of Murano glass art as we know it today.
