New exhibition in the Vitromusée

On the occasion of the digital publication of Ulrich Daniel Metzger's manuscript, the Vitromusée Romont is devoting an exhibition to this unique travelling artist. Born in Speyer in 1671, Ulrich Daniel Metzger completed his apprenticeship as a glassmaker in 1704 but did not take up or open a workshop. Instead of settling down, he travelled all over Germany and made various detours, for example to Bern in Switzerland, Arkhangelsk in far-off Russia, or settled in Catholic Vienna for several years. The centrepiece of the exhibition is Ulrich Daniel Metzger's manuscript, acquired by the Vitrocentre Romont in 2004 at an auction. In this small book, he collected dedications and recipes and copied engravings that he saw on his travels. The entries with dates and places make it possible to reconstruct his itinerary between 1708 and 1715 and provide a unique insight into his eventful life. In addition to the manuscript, the exhibition presents a selection of surviving works by Ulrich Daniel Metzger, including paintings under glass, engravings and calligraphy sheets.
