Piero Fornasetti: imagination and illusion

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 23 novembre 2015

Fornasetti.jpgLondon – Christie’s Design department is delighted to present an exclusive online-only auction of works by one of the most important figures of 20th century Italian design, Piero Fornasetti. Known as a sculptor, painter, decorator, craftsman, engraver and stage designer, Piero Fornasetti created porcelain tableware, furniture, glass and small objects and was active from the 1950s onwards. The core of the sale will be formed of pieces that have been hand-picked from the collection of the New York socialite Claire Creatore in the price range of $200 – $10,000. Claire Creatore has been collecting his pieces for 20 years and began when she discovered a paper weight in an antiques shop. She bought it then took it home in her pocket and from then on she has passionately collected Fornasetti creations. She has developed a universe dedicated to the renowned designer through displaying them in her Manhattan pied-à-terre. Gio Ponti described his work as having a “sly sweetness”, a phrase that rang true for Creatore who finds Fornasetti whimsical, humorous, fantastical and playful. (photo: Fornasetti)
