A Retrospective of Piero Fornasetti
The Parisian Museum of Decorative Arts presents a retrospective work of Piero Fornasetti, an Italian painter, sculptor and interior decorator. More than 1000 of his works are displayed in this showcase which sketches Fornasetti as jack of all decorators.
A self taught man, Piero Fornasetti learned everything on his own by reading books, learning lithography and drawing. The result of his brilliant self-studies are printed textiles, posters, logos, advertising products and fashion accessories. Although considered father of pop art, modernism in his work can also be seen in this exhibition.
His work canvases the world of references and styles from Rome and Italy: Renaissance relic, Palladian architecture, furniture, tables, chairs, screens and over 1000 objects of art which illustrate the career of Fornasetti who has worked for decorations at palaces, casinos, ships and also for advertising. Among the objects displayed we can admire Fornasetti’s bookend series where he designed a face in the keyhole, wooden serving trays hand-crafted and hand-painted, theme and variation plates and many more to add.
An outstanding work of the artist is a must see exhibition for all the art lovers, interior designers and those who seek creative ideas.
The exhibit will last until 14 June 2015.
