During this long career he established an enduring reputation as a designer with a style that was distinctly his own a style based on illusion, architectural perspectives, and a host of personal leitmotifs, such as the sun, playing cards, fish, and flowers, from which he spun seemingly endless variations. Fornasetti applied his decorative vocabulary to an astonishing array of objects hats, vests, pipes, ashtrays, chairs, plates, cabinets, pianos, ocean liners and transformed them by the application of unexpected images. Today his work seems more contemporary and is more popular than ever. Designers and collectors celebrate his use of allusion, unsettling images, and striking juxtaposition to create unique, whimsical objects. Fornasetti s masterpieces continue to shock, delight, and inspire.
