    Piero Fornasetti plates

      "What inspired me to create more than 500 variations on the face of a woman?" Piero Fornasetti asked of himself."I don't know. I began to make them and I never stopped."

      Nascido em 1913, Piero Fornasetti foi um pintor milanês e designer de interiores. Um dia, ele se deparou com uma imagem do cantor de ópera Lina Cavalieri em uma revista francesa século, 19, olhando tão enigmático como a Mona Lisa. Esta imagem inspirou Fornasetti para criar sua série de mais de 350 placas. Cada placa expande a placa inicial como ele se move através de temas como a ilusão, perspectivas arquitetônicas, o sol, e arlequins.
