Themes and Variations wall plate No. 142 MOSS EXCLUSIVE

It looks like pie in the face...right? notes: Piero Fornasetti's graphic art often re-worked a single idea over and over again, allowing his imagination run free to develop new concepts. The most famous of these ideas - the Themes and Variations, illustrated variations on the image of an enigmatic, almost Mona Lisa-like face of a woman. The woman was Lina Cavalieri, whose face Fornasetti found while glancing through a 19th Century French magazine. Originally four plates were designed by Piero Fornasetti - the plate series now has 350 variations.
