Piero Fornasetti
Italy, 1955

Six porcelain hanging platters with various printed polychrome fish on blue and white base. Stamped “Piscibus Fornasetti”. 

Italian painter, sculptor and decorator Piero Fornasetti (1913-88), famous for his eclectic hand-painted decorations on furnitures, fabric and objects, was born in Milan and studied a few years at Academia di Belle Arti di Brera. In 1940 he began a historic collaboration with italian designer Gio Ponti, which gave Fornasetti great popular success.  

In 1991, Victoria & Albert Museum held a major retrospective of his work, and in 2015 Musee des Art Décoratifs featured an exhibition of Fornasettis work, where similar porcelain hanging platters were on show.
