Burlesque - Candle 10.5oz
Once again the archetypal classic female features and enigmatic expression of Lina Cavalieri come to the fore. Her image became Fornasetti’s most frequently used template and upon which he based more than 350 variations. Fornasetti has always claimed he chose this face for its enigmatic characteristic and its classical shape and traits.
The two images used in ‘Burlesque’ are ‘Tema e Variazioni’. n°78 (face with net) and n°22 (mask) in perfect burlesque style giving the candles a touch of transgression and irony in true Fornasetti style. Burlesque was originally designed for fashion store L’Eclaireur in Paris and has proved so successful that it has been brought into the main collection.
