Paul Bellardo (1924) Art Glass Apple clear Large, c. 1982

£90.00

Product description

Paul Bellardo (1924) Art Glass Apple, c. 1982. Country of Origin: United States. Approx Size: 2 3/4" diameter; 4" tall. Marks/Signatures: "Bellardo Ltd" "Anderson 1982". Retails for approx £150.

Condition: Very Good.
Paul Bellardo has been known for his realistic looking apple paperweights since the 1970s. As New York City is known as The Big Apple, it was fitting that Paul offer these apples to customers in his New York City gallery in every imaginable color. Some well-known people have apples by Bellardo; such as Elizabeth Taylor, Doris Day, Sandy Duncan, and President Ronald Reagan.

Paul Bellardo was born in Hartford, CT on February 5, 1924. He graduated from the Boston's School of the Museum of Fine Arts with the highest honors after a year of post graduate work and teaching for ten years at the Museum School. Among his many early accolades was a travel scholarship from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation for his ceramic creations.

Paul's first one-man-show was in 1965 at the DeCordova Museum of Fine Arts in Provincetown, Massachusetts. It was at this showing that 18 pieces of Paul's work were purchased by Walter P. Chrysler for inclusion in the permanent collection of the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia. This success was quickly followed by shows at the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the George Walter Vincent Smith Museum, and the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts.

Paul opened his gallery in Provincetown, Mass. Paul's major claim to fame, however, was for a record-breaking 35 years as owner of a landmark gallery of contemporary arts and crafts in New York City's West Village. Unfortunately, Bellardo Ltd. was closed permanently when Paul decided it was time to retire. Paul Bellardo, on July 16, 2017 at 93 years of age.

Today, Paul's creations are in private collections worldwide; as well as in several prestigious museums. Most recently, several pieces of Paul's work were acquired by the New Orleans Museum of Art, as a part of their permanent collection.
