Girl Tribute To Picasso Murano Glass Sculpture

1999

About the Item

Girl Omaggio a Picasso (Tribute to Picasso) Murano glass sculpture 15.5" H x 12" W x 5" D This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. Signed, titled, artist logo stamp. Walter Furlan was born (1931-2018) in Chioggia, a small town near Venice. He started to work in a furnace called “VAMSA” very early. He apprenticed from one of the most famous glass masters on the island, Romano Tosi, better known as 'Mamaracio'. Towards the end of the second world war (1940-1945) he worked in the furnace 'Gino Cenedese', where he met Alfredo Barbini along with the old masters from Vamsa (among others: Mamaracio and Gino Forte, better known as 'Peta'). During this period Master, Walter Furlan learned the particular technique called 'a massello' (i.e. he learned how to shape a quantity of glass that was not blown and therefore quite difficult to handle). In 1963, he exhibited his works of art in the official Glass Display on Murano Island sponsored by the Venetian Institute for Work and later on in Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Reggio, Calabria. At the beginning of the 70’s he cooperated with Master Angelo Seguso and designer Mario Pinsoni in the glass factory 'Seguso Art Glass'. The fascinating artistic work of Picasso expressed in Furlan's glass sculptures is demonstrated by the experience acquired during his periods of work with the old masters. He has interpreted Picasso's paintings during his Cubic Period and has given them a 3rd dimension. Each sculpture is hand-crafted and signed, the glass welded to remove fractures making it robust and able to refract the light beautifully. The colors are vivid, and the work is profoundly dimensional. It is as if Picasso sculpted them himself! In fact, what greater accolade is there in that Picasso gave license to Walter Furlan to carry on using his name after his death in 1973. The works of Walter Furlan are to be found in museums collection all over the world.
