The Art of Fornasetti Neckties
Fornasetti neckties are magnificent art works in their own right, rightly so they are wonderful fashion accessories for a man of culture who appreciates fine art. The designer, Piero Fornasetti 1913 -1988, born in Milano Italy, became well known in the art world for his unique style of themed illustrations that were intriguing and captivating, and at times; dream like in design. He would comment often, “my secrete is imagination.” Several collections of art ties are included in reproductions now; of the over 11,000 different art works that he created during his lifetime as an illustrator.
Much of his work was recurring themes in variation. One, featuring a woman’s face, his most notable subject was explored about 500 times as passionate illustrations. Her image in various tones and formats has been produced in many different motifs; as art ties, apparel, lamps, everyday house hold items like plates or ash trays, and even extremely fashionable umbrellas. Other subjects that became a constant themes were the sun, the moon, playing cards, and time. Many of his works are in black and white of which most are in the style of Roman and Greek architecture. As an artist, designer and decorator; he worked in close collaboration with his friend and partner Giò Ponti, whose furniture he decorated with drawings in a trompe-l'oeil-style.
