Fortuny: His Life and WorkRegular price $85.00
Mariano Fortuny was a visionary designer and artist. Best known today for his rich, innovative textiles and opulent dress designs, he was also an accomplished painter, etcher and photographer, as well as a designer of theatrical sets, costumes and lighting, revolutionizing the stagecraft of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with his ambitious lighting designs. Fortuny's varied and sumptuous output has acquired almost mythological status in the canon of early twentieth- century Aestheticism. Guillermo de Osma provides a complete and authoritative account of his life and work.
