Sleeping Putto, a glass sculpture

GIBERTO con Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia

Description

In its role as a decorative centrepiece, a tenderly posed marble putto with a particularly sweet expression has always kept watch over the Arrivabene family table. Inherited from the Papadopoli family, who were famous collectors, it is probably from the circle of Bartolomeo Ferrari (1780-1844). The little figure has now been replicated in Murano glass thanks to a complex lost-wax casting process previously tried and tested by Giberto Arrivabene with other sculptural masterpieces.

 

The new version will be exhibited during Glass Week 2018 at Ca’ Pesaro in an intriguing dialogue with the museum’s collection.
