Venetian frenzy

For more than 5,000 years, glass has been one of the most difficult materials for man to master. The "Venetian Frenzy – Spanish Glass from the 16th to the 18th Century" exhibition offers a selection of more than 200 Spanish glass art objects, the result of a fusion between "Venice-style" glass and local shapes and decorations. Refined, elegant and luxurious works, which were reserved for royal and noble families, share space with less elaborate glasses for more everyday use. The exhibition is designed around pieces from the Grand Curtius museum, loans from other European museums and an incredibly rich private collection.
