Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano

October 8, 2021 - May 8, 2022

This exhibit documents the Venetian glass revival on the island of Murano between 1860 and 1915, which coincided with Grand Tours of Europe made by American luminaries. The period produced a wellspring of art depicting Venice and its illustrious glassblowing studios. Works by Sargent (right), Whistler and many others are on exhibit alongside exquisite hand-blown Murano glass objects (far right). americanart.si.edu
