Vittorio Zecchin for Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Cappellin Venini Murano, 1920-1925

About

Important original art glass compote by Vittorio Zecchin for Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Cappellin Venini Murano e Co., made during Zecchin's tenure as the artistic director of the society Vetri Soffiati Muranesi Cappellin Venini & Co., 1920-1925. Vittorio Zecchin was quite the character and renaissance man. He frequented the Fine Arts Academy of Venice as a young man and went on to simultaneously maintain careers as a painter, tapestry designer, embroiderer, and glass artist. He famously presented a series of glass for the Barovier workshop at the 1914 Biennial with Teodoro Wolf Ferrari. During the war 1915–1918 he set up a laboratory of tapestries in an ex-convent in Murano. He went on to exhibit his works – art glasses, tapestries, embroidery and paintings at the Biennial of Venice, Milan, Rome, Monza, Turin, Paris. He taught at the Abbate Zanetti school in Murano (glass) and also at the Vendramin Corner professional school (tapestries and embroidery). As with all of Zecchin's Venini production during this early period, the piece is unmarked / unetched. However the application of the deeply colored glass to the sheer nude blush art glass at rims and points along the body, careful undulation of form at stem and sweetly rolling and pinched rim are trademark Zecchin. The finesse and technology required for such a work, not to mention the aesthetic gumption, is particular to Zecchin's output in the early 1920's. Another stunning example of Zecchin's 1920-1925 oeuvre and a possible companion piece to this compote is in the Liliane and David M. Stewart Collection of The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2008.100). I've attached a photo of that piece here as well.   The pink steuben piece in the photos has been sold.
