Fornasetti Wallpapers by Cole & Son at Lines of Pinner
The Fornasetti Collection consists of 14 designs selected by Coles and Barnaba Fornasetti from fine drawings in the archive of his father, Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988). The visionary Italian artist is known for his surreal imagination and craftsmanship. He believed strongly in Disegno, the practice of sketching and redrawing, following the classical Italian artistic tradition to which he added his unique style with a strong sense of irony and humour. He worked independently of the avant-garde and his production of exquisitely made objects, ceramics, textiles and furniture, some of which are in the V&A Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is one of the largest of the 20th century.
