Masters of Design: maîtres aux enchères, Philips

La maison de ventes Philips de Pury & Company a réuni de rares pièces de designers comme Line Vautrin, Jean Prouvé, Max Ingrand, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Jean Royère, Serge Mouille ou Piero Fornasetti pour la vente aux enchères "Masters of Design" (les "maîtres du design"). Philips de Pury & Company auction house gathered a selection of rare 50 pieces by such designers as Line Vautrin, Jean Prouvé, Max Ingrand, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Jean Royère, Serge Mouille or Piero Fornasetti for their "Masters of Design" auction in New York.

Fornasetti, at last!

L'oeuvre de Piero Fornasetti, en dépit de l'extraordinaire production de l'artiste (11 000 pièces au cours de sa carrière, et presque autant de fantasques déclinaisons du visage de la cantatrice Lina Cavalieri), a rarement fait l'objet d'expositions. Italian designer Piero Fornasetti, despite his enormous production (in excess of 11.000 pieces throughout his career, most of them decorated with whimsical reproductions of opera singer Lina Cavalieri), has seldom seen his works exhibited.
