Description Piero Fornasetti Porcelain Plate Themes & Variation Pattern,
Pattern 114, Profile,
Tema E Variazioni
(Ref NY9315/nar)

The striking Piero Fornasetti dramatic black and white porcelain plate is printed with a strange depiction of a profile of the face of Lina Cavalieri. While the face is in profile and one half of the plate is black, the right eye looks directly towards the viewer creating a false sense that you are looking at the image face on.

Dimensions: 10 1/4 inches diameter x 1 inch high

Mark: Below an image of an eye- Tema E Variazioni/ Fonasetti. Milano/Made in ITALY.


The image that inspired Fornasetti to coin the title 'Tema e Variazioni', is the enigmatic face of a woman: the opera singer Lina Cavalieri.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern
Patterns Contemporary/Modern
