The “a pennellate” brush-stroke series is one of Carlo Scarpa’s rarest and most famous produced in a very limited number of examples owing to both its difficulty in execution and the Second World War in progress at the time. The technique employed to embellish the surface was one of the most challenging and elaborate imaginable: polychrome applications applied to the surface of the vase in an irregular sequence that recalls a painter’s swirling brushstrokes of colour on canvas.

Vase of the series "a pennellate". Venini, Murano, 1942ca. Ovoid-shaped body with narrow neck. Irregular applied bands in the colors of lattimo and amethyst. Strongly iridescent surface. Drawing n. 4541 of the furnace catalog. Signed under the base
