“Occhio” Side Table- Small


This small side table depicts a section of the face of Lina Cavalieri, namely one of her eyes. Fornasetti was transfixed by her gaze. He first encountered the visage of the opera singer while leafing through a magazine from the 19th century and was immediately transfixed. For the rest of his life, she remained a constant source of inspiration to him and the basis for hundreds of his designs. He once described her as the quintessence of classic beauty, comparable to the Mona Lisa.
