Historical Description

Created in 1954 in the Fucina degli Angeli in Italy, Pablo Picasso Untitled, 1962 is a Murano colored glass sculpture realized by master glass artist Egidio Costantini (Brindisi, 1912- Venice, 1998) in collaboration with Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 – Mougins, 1973). This work is inscribed on the base: “P. Picasso E. Costantini 1962 P.A. Venezia".

Picasso's Glass Art:
Picasso's relationship with Egidio Costantini echoes his partnership with the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris, France. The two men initially met in Vallauris in 1954, though their working relationship would begin a few years later, due in part to Peggy Guggenheim's invitation for Picasso to come to Venice. While Suzanne and Georges Ramié created large editions based on original prototypes created by Picasso, Costantini translated the artist's drawings into glass sculptures produced in very limited editions. This master of La Fucina degli Angeli (the Forge of the Angels), Murano, transformed the centuries-old tradition of Italian glass blowing into a modern art. A 1965 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, recognized the importance of these rare sculptures, which are housed in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, amongst other notable collections.
