FORNASETTI "MESI SOLI #5" 10" CERAMIC PLATE
Fornasetti's "12 Mesi 12 Soli" series is one of his best.
The series perfectly capture's Fornasetti's mastery of drawing and combines both surrealist influences and his whimsical personifications of the sun and the moon.
We often like to compare Fornasetti to Warhol: A talented illustrator. A master of appropriation. Prolific and relentlessly inventive. Glamorous and playful.
Collectors and design enthusiasts look for Fornasetti pieces produced during his lifetime (1913-1988).
One of the most recurrent themes in Fornasetti’s body of work is interpretation of the sun, moon and stars. This plate is a paradigm of his meditation on this motif.
A great gift for someone who adores Italian 20th century design. Fornasetti plates fabulously embellish table tops when entertaining...but are historically and aesthetically significant to be hung on the wall!
We are offering another example from "12 Mesi 12 Soli" series (#6) and it is depicted in the last images.
