Acquisitions in 2010
In 2010, the Conches Glass Museum made a great number of acquisitions for its permanent collection. The Amon Gallery generously donated a collection of blown glass art works by Claude Morin that he did in the 1970s to 1980s, thus completing the collection of decorative art dedicated to the revival of French blown glass of this period. Our sculpture collection has also been enhanced with a second donation from the Amon Gallery which includes sculptures by Eva Fiserova, Lubomir Arzt, Joramir Rybak, Christian Klepsch, Peter Layton and Antoine Leperlier, all from the 1980s. And last but not least, our stained glass window collection has been enriched by a representation of Saint Maurice that Francois Decorchemont did in 1965, a large number of sketches by Jacques Berland in the fifties as well as the magnificent stained glass window, “Shattered Gold,” done by Henri Guerin in 2001.
