Join us for this special Smithsonian American Art Museum virtual docent tour of their new exhibit:  Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano.

 

This exhibition brings to life the Venetian glass revival of the nineteenth century on the famed island of Murano and the artistic experimentation the city inspired for artists such as John Singer Sargent and James McNeill Whistler.

 

In addition to works by Sargent and Whistler, the exhibition features paintings and prints by Frank Duveneck, Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Maurice Prendergast, Maxfield Parrish, Louise Cox, and Ellen Day Hale. These are featured alongside rarely seen Venetian glass mosaic portraits and glass cups, vases, and urns by the leading glassmakers of Murano, including members of the legendary Seguso, Barovier, and Moretti families. Remarkable works from the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s collection join loans from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and dozens of other distinguished public and private collections.

 

This event is a collaboration between Little Falls Village and Friendship Heights Neighbors Network. TOUR IS FOR LFV AND FHNN MEMBERS & VOLUNTEERS ONLY. The Zoom login info will be sent to confirmed registrants. 

 

Group size is limited! RSVP now to confirm your space.
