  • Description
    Crystal "Neve di Primavera" illuminated lighting panel by Angelo Brotto for Esperia. This is an early Model example of excellent quality. There is a lighting element inside the frame and the top panel is removable to change the bulb. The frame is in original stitched white leather (threre is a small scuff on the right hand side). In the centre there is a sculptural piece in polished brass and heavy crystal elements representing a sea shell. This wonderful panel is a wonderful and functional art piece.
    Angelo Brotto was a Venetian designer and artist who is known for his work as a lamp designer and for his work with glass. He graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia in 1941, and immediately thereafter, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned him to paint frescoes in Montenegro. During the late 40s, he created pieces in Venice for Peggy Guggenheim’s collection, and during his career he won many design and art awards, including awards in Bergamo, Cremona, Suzzara, and Verona, as well as at the first Exhibition of Engravings in Rome.
    Brotto collaborated with the Murano glassmaker Esperia during the 1960s and 1970s, and he became a prolific lighting designer during this collaboration. His lamps, in particular, quickly earned acclaim for capturing the sensibility of the time, creating playful and artistic modern shapes, and breaking with the traditional ways in which the glassmaking skills of Murano were applied in light designs. He participated in many biennials, and his creations are celebrated at numerous exhibitions.
