MONT BLANC Meisterstück Selection Sfumato


With the introduction of Meisterstück Sfumato, a collection of masterfully painted leather goods with a contemporary and sophisticated style, Montblanc once again pushed the boundaries of craftsmanship to create a different kind of leather experience.  Blending age-old traditions with the Maison’s passion for finest craftsmanship and innovation, each item is a painted masterpiece inspired by “sfumato”, the ingenious Renaissance painting technique pioneered by Leonardo Da Vinci and his followers to achieve fine shading and the most delicate graduation between colours. By masterfully blending areas into one another through the superimposition of many layers of thin paint with tiny brushstrokes, the technique creates an atmosphere of great softness. When applied to the treatment of leather, it gives each painted piece an elegant patina.
