Tray 40 Theme & Variation


This tray features a variation on the theme of the face of Lina Cavalieri, a key source of inspiration in life of Fornasetti. 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.
