Night falls on Paris when you pass through the Tuileries to join the Decorative Arts. Tonight, you have a guided tour of the exhibition long awaited of Piero Fornasetti which are grouped for the first time over a thousand pieces of the passionate Italian for arts of all kinds.
Throughout the ride, you’ll be immersed in the fantasy world created exclusively for the event to immerse yourself in the spirit of Piero Fornasetti. Trays, curtains, screens with multiple prints get mixed with a happy jumble of unexpected objects. You stay speechless in front of the paintings on the wall, experimentation with various techniques from this designer from Fine Arts of Brera in Milan. Everything works perfectly correlated, the colors are many and associate in a wild and perfect harmony.
It is in this baroque and extravagant universe that you infiltrate arriving under the nave of Decorative Arts. He loved collections and always created more; leaving free rein to his imagination, inspired by the trends in society.
You then discover the decorations inspired from around the world and let yourself be captivated by the multiplicity of images: maps, lighters, boxes, nothing is spared in this creative madness. Fornassetti loved the useless, beautiful, surrealism, he composed entire folders of images that he tore from books. He worked on drawing, engraving on any support and stubbornly sought new ways to surprise.
You find with emotion the permanance of the lunar and mesmerizing face of the soprano Lina Cavalieri that he declined in more than 300 versions and that where reproduced again and again. You lose your head in the middle of this almost delusional expansion: the enigmatic faces shine, a headless man enjoys his drink while a zebra with a shiny gaze watches you leave in the middle of its golden foliage, the wonderful world of Piero Fornasetti.
