About
Piero Fornasetti Pottery Vegetalia Plate, #10 Morino, 1955 The plate depicts a woman's face created by the positioning of different vegetables to create a side profile. Dimensions: Diameter 9 1/4 inches x 1 inch high. Piero Fornasetti here was obviously strongly influenced by the much earlier work of Giuseppe Arcimboldo (Italian: also spelled Arcimboldi) (1526 or 1527 – July 11, 1593) who was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books – that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognizable likeness of the portrait subject. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_Arcimboldo) There is a slightly different series, similarly decorated and designed which was called Arcimboldesca-motif in the style of Arcimboldo which differs in tat the portraits are full faced rather than in profile which is illustrated on page 616, #168 in The Complete Universe (see below). Reference: Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, Barnaba Fornasetti, page 608, #136 shows a picture of Piero standing in front of a wall of plates from the earliest years of production and plates from this vegetalia series are seen, in fact, with his hands resting on one of them. See page 616, 3166 for a plate from this series. less
