Loredano Rosin was an Italian sculptor best known for his traditional use of Murano glass to depict stylized figures and animals. By employing an ancient Italian technique from Calcedonia, he used silver nitrate to create subtle color striations in his figurines. Rosin worked as a master glassblower for Salviati & Company, where he notably collaborated with artists such as Pablo Picasso and Marc Chagall in realizing their vision in glass. Born in 1936 in Venice, Italy, he studied with Romano Zanelli and Cocui Saor as a teenager before establishing his own studio, where he worked with his brothers Mirko and Dino Rosin. Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, among others. The artist died in 1992 in Venice, Italy.
