Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Beautiful and super rare 'Cassapanca di buona memoria' (chest of beautiful memories) by famed Italian artist Emilio Tadini (1927-2002). Tadini was invited to exhibit his paintings at the Venice Biennale in both 1978 and 1982 and was a true polymath in that he was also equally impressive as an artist, sculptor and poet. Umberto Eco, in a eulogy, said of him "a painter who writes, a writer who paints."

This design was a main feature in the September 1987 issue of Casa Vogue with photographs taken by the famed photographer Aldo Ballo. Please see image 2. The five visible external surfaces, including the hinged top, are covered in beautiful and vibrant original serigraphs by Tadini.

This design was produced in both black and white with the Casa Vogue reviewer stating that the black version was the most precious of the two. The black version of this design was also exhibited in 2014 at the Spazio Tadini, museum and exhibition space, in Milan. Please see image 10.

These exclusive cabinets were produced in very small numbers, circa 1930-1950 examples is estimated, by the Italian company Interflex in the 1980s.Unfortunately Interflex no longer exists and closed its doors in the early 1990s.

This example still retains its original castors and is in very nice original condition.

A beautiful and rare piece fit to grace any home.

Literature: Casa Vogue, issue September 1987, page 281. Please see image 2.
