Cabinet, designed by Gio Ponti, decorated by Piero Fornasetti. Italy, 1951.

Fornasetti was secretive about his decorative techniques, in an attempt to thwart imitators. He created lithographs of his designs, which were printed onto transfer sheets and then applied to each section of the furniture. Colour was added later, as was a varnish, which has yellowed with age on this example.
