Exhibition “Stars”

Article publié le 20 May 2024

At the Vilna Gaon Museum

This exhibition, dedicated to Kazys Morkunas, presents his stained glass windows and allows visitors to appreciate the reflections and highlights of the colours by the sun’s rays and their varying power and position. Two Stars of David, created by the artist at the beginning of the 21st century, are among the museum’s major pieces. As early as 1953, Morkunas was one of the first Lithuanian artists to experiment with the technique of fusing layers of stained glass. In 1981, he created a 180 m2 work decorating a room in the national parliament.
