“Homage to Caslino d’Erba” B
Collection in homage to Caslino d’Erba, my birthplace and home of a flourishing business in the manufacturing and trade of the silk in the 18th century. I freely took inspiration from the decorations of Pecori Palace, depicting sphinxes, lunettes with birds and details of vases with magnificent flowers and fruits. Filippo Comerio (1747-1827) painted these last-mentioned decorations. The majolic decoration in Faenza gained prestigious thanks to him and the so-called “Comerio green” is named after this artist, who became one of the most important European vase painters of that time.
Silk 100%, made in Como, hand-rolled – 40″x40″ – 55″x55″
