20th Century after Frank Lloyd Wright Pair of Sculpture Chairs by Grazia Fanfani

About

Grazia Fanfani was born in 1942 at Sansepolcro (Arezzo). She obtained a diploma in Scenography with the maximum of marks at the Academy of Art in Rome. In 1964 she attended a course of painting on cloth at the Institute of Art in Reggio Emilia and studied for several years the technique of design and painting on silk. In 1982 she collaborated in the setting of the film “Identification of a woman” under the direction of Michelangelo Antonioni. She had been introduced to the effect of quality and beauty in art and in particular antique art by Vittorio Cini, her extraordinary mentor in her young years. Then she had the great opportunity of a professional collaboration with her friend architect Francesco d’Ayala Valva for the reconstruction of several properies and projects. The design of the chair, when the Architect was a promising student of Frank Lloyd Wright in the 60s in the USA, surfaced in his studio in Rome. Together they elaborated and reinterpreted the original cherrywood chair and with Grazia’s linear ability and flair for colour, impressing her style and vision. She gave life to the orginal design with a personal pictorial cromatism and a caleidoscope of colours . The beholder is overwhelmed at the impact of the colours, strong and vibrant or soft and delicate, complementing each other, fusing into the curved lines of the chair.. A collection of exclusive models has been produced ready to embark on new adventures – it is the rebirth of an almost lost teasure..
