INTRODUCING FORNASETTI’S COLLECTION OF EVOCATIVE HOMEWARE WHICH BEAUTIFULLY CAPTURES THE ARTIST’S IRONIC STYLE.
Classic, but special. That’s how we would define Fornasetti collection.
The Fornasetti collection was first done on ceramic. All of his works are based on a same person, Lina Cavalieri. She was known to be the 1900s Italian soprano. Strangely, the pieces were not based on the real face of Lina, but the one that he had found on wood engraving. After becoming his motif, she was the canvas of his drawings. There are more than 350 interpretations of her in his collections.
With the sensational artistic sense, he’s collections are known for “Theme and Variations” series. The mind-blowing concept specialized and distinguished Fornasetti from other artists in mid-20th, when typography was in trend.
Since his work is highly valued, the items are mostly considered as an art work rather than just being seen as a piece of decor. Take a deeper look into his works, you will definitely be amazed by its quality.
