PLUM ON GOLD | SAGE AND MAGENTA ON INK | CERULEAN AND ORANGE ON WHITE | YELLOW POMEGRANATE
Frutto Proibito gloriously combines different archival Fornasetti motifs from the 1940s and 50s. Mischievous monkeys, originally conceptualised as striking wooden panels for the Milanese patisserie, Dulciora, sit amongst sprawling pomegranate tree branches. The playful composition of flora and fauna is quintessentially Fornasetti, mixing lifelike etchings with decadent, bold prints. Deep Ink and Gold grounds accentuate Magenta and Plum forbidden fruits, whilst Cerulean and Orange offers a bright, sunny alternative.
