A comprehensive collection of works by this remarkable Italian family. In late 2006 the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) purchased its first work by a member of the Bugatti family, Carlo Bugatti's 'Throne' chair, circa 1900. From this initial acquisition the idea of an exhibition grew, until the gallery announced it would stage Australia's first exhibition of the work of the Bugatti family in early 2009. The exhibition will showcase the work of three generations of craftsmen, artists and designers: furniture by Carlo Bugatti, animal sculptures by his son Rembrandt, and the legendary cars designed by Carlo's eldest son Ettore and Ettore's son, Jean. The Bugatti family represents a fascinating and unique story in the history of art, design and automobiles during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Compiled by Amanda Dunsmore and John Payne, co-curators of decorative arts at the NGV, 'Bugatti' is a comprehensive collection of the works by this remarkable Italian family that will be on display during the gallery's 2009 exhibition. SELLING POINTS: - Catalogues the first exhibition of the work of the extraordinary Bugatti family to be held in Australia - The furniture, silver, sculptures and cars produced by this family of talented and eccentric individuals embody the common themes of truth to materials, love of natural form and originality of thought - Amanda Dunsmore and John Payne are curators of decorative arts at the National Gallery of Victoria 161 col., 26 b.andw.
