Description

The taste for exoticism that arose in the mid-nineteenth century, which presented a fabulous and picturesque image of the East specially built for the Western public, first imposed itself in the figurative arts and then also moved on to the decorative arts: in the last years of the century it spreads , especially among the new rising bourgeoisie, the fashion to offer Moorish-style furnishings in their buildings. Carlo Bugatti, a brilliant and extraordinarily creative artist, developed a new and very personal style, marked by a marked originality. In his furniture the Moorish taste is intertwined with graphic motifs derived from Japonism then in vogue and with reminiscences of past cultures. The cabinet of the Wolfsoniana also testifies to the attention that the artist had for the use of different and often rarely used materials in the furniture (copper, brass, parchment, silk), always worked with an extraordinary technical virtuosity.
