Homage to Picasso Murano Sculpture by Walter Furlan

US$38,768.16Asking Price


Pablo Picasso gave license to Walter Furlan to use his name in these Murano glass sculptures which interpreted Picasso's paintings during his Cubic period. Homage To Picasso 22" x width 18" ( 56cm x 46cm ) Murano glass sculpture Front profile shown Pablo Picasso gave license to Walter Furlan to use his name in these Murano Glass Sculptures which interpreted Picasso's paintings during his Cubic Period. The fascinating artistic work of Picasso expressed in Furlan's glass sculptures is demonstrated by all the experience acquired during his periods of work with old masters. He has interpreted Picasso's paintings during his Cubic Period and given them a 3rd dimension. Each sculpture is hand-crafted and signed, the glass nielded to remove fractures making it robust and able to refract the light beautifully. The colours are vivid the work profoundly dimensional. It is as if Picasso sculpted them himself! In fact what greater accolade is there in that Picasso gave license to Furlan to carry on using his name after his death in 1973. The works of Walter Furlan are to be found in better Italian museums that specialize in sculptured glass. His wonderful interpretations of Pablo Picasso's artwork will only increase in value as Furlan's work is now limited because of his advancing age.
