GONÇALO VIANA | NELSON ROCKEFELLER’S PORCELAIN FOR VISTA ALEGRE
December 29, 2023 Gonçalo Viana
Another great piece #lcmartist Gonçalo Viana got to contribute to Vista Alegre book celebrating their 200th anniversary. Illustrating special moments in their history, this piece is about Nelson Rockefeller. Rockefeller, who had in his art collection several rare porcelain pieces, once commissioned Vista Alegre to produce an exact replica of a piece from the 18th century. The replica was undistinguishable from the original and thus started the process of reproducing hundreds of pieces from his collection, helping to protect his originals.
