From the Publisher:
During Piero Fornasetti's long career he established an enduring reputation as a designer with a style that was all his own--a style based on illusionism, architectural perspectives, and a host of personal leitmotifs, such as the sun, playing cards, fishes, and flowers, from which he spun seemingly endless variations. Fornasetti applied his decorative vocabulary to an astonishing array of objects--hats, waistcoats, pipes, ashtrays, chairs, plates, cabinets, pianos, shops, racing cars, ocean liners: all were transformed by the application of unexpected images. The Post-Modernist reappraisal of design has left Fornasetti's oeuvre more contemporary and popular than ever. Designers and collectors today celebrate his use of allusion, unsettling images, and striking juxtapositions to create unique, whimsical objects. Fornasetti's masterpieces shock, delight, and inspire.
