LIBENSKÝ / BRYCHTOVÁ


Stanislav Libenský (1921 - 2002) and Jaroslava Brychtová (1924) are world-renown Czech artists who created some of the defining cast glass sculptures and architectural installations of the 20th century.  During a life and artistic partnership, which lasted almost 50 years, they explored the optical and physical aspects of glass to develop a body of work concerning form, light and color.  Their sculptural legacy ranges from luminous geometry to spiritual figuration.

 They have been the recipients of the 1958 Grand Prize at Expo ’58 in Brussels, Belgium.  Their works are included in numerous private and public collections worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY; Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, OH; National Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic; Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, France; Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, England.
