Piero Fornasetti

Hi Sunshines, happy Friday! I am have been enamored with Piero Fornasetti's art for a long time, it is timeless, beautiful, and it can be added to any room. Please visit his website here Piero Fornasetti. Plan to stay awhile, this website is absolutely georgeous! It is living!

Here is a link to a beautiful blog I found recently, Tassels Twigs and Tastebuds, who has showcased Fornasetti art with lovely pictures and comment.

The following images come from Unica Home website. Please take a peek at the blog and the website. Lots of information and beautiful art!

"Born in Milan in 1913, Piero Fornasetti was a painter, interior decorator, and designer with an enduring sense of humor in his production (estimated at over 11,000 items). Fornasetti's primary output consists of strong graphics resulting in an interplay between reality and illusion. trompe l'oeil and classical imagery also have an interplay. "

I watched a program once a long time ago where they were making a tabletop out of the famous face plate, they split an enlarged copy in four equal parts and painted it onto the table. It was beautiful!

Just sharing some Art for Friday! I hope you enjoy! Hugs Kat =^.^=
