The Chateau Dufresne Museum Presents a New Exhibition: Nincheri's Secular Work

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2010) - The Chateau Dufresne Museum is presenting a new exhibition, Nincheri's Secular Work, the first museum event held as part of Montreal, City of Glass. The exhibition is devoted to painter and master stained glass artist Guido Nincheri (1885-1973), originally from Tuscany. It looks at the artist's many influences through the secular themes developed in his stained glass and paintings.

The exhibition is being presented thanks to Magnus Poirier Inc. and the Quebec region of the National Congress of Italian Canadians. It reinterprets the murals and stained glass pieces in the Chateau Dufresne and re-examines their intriguing story. A number of little-known works that were removed from the Chateau Dufresne in 1949 will be displayed for the first time.

The stained glass studio of Guido Nincheri will be open to the public this summer.

The exhibition is being presented from January 27 to September 12, 2010. The Museum is located at 2929 avenue Jeanne-d'Arc, in Montreal, and is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information: 514-259-9201
