Ser Jacopo: Picta Magritte Spongia Sandblasted Bent Dublin with Silver (S3) (C) (16)
Product Number: 002-171-3255
The late Giancarlo Guidi was an avid art collector and enthusiast. So much of an enthusiast, in fact, that he created the Picta line — a series inspired by pipes featured in the works of major artists like van Gogh, Miro, and Magritte. For inspiration for these designs, he looked to his various monographs, which often feature images of the unfinished or otherwise more obscure work of one artist or another, as well as their famous pieces. One of those lesser-known works was the inspiration for this rather whimsical bent Dublin shape, sourced from a Magritte painting translated The Pipes Enamored at the Moon (1928) — a painting that we've been unable to uncover anywhere else. It's finished in the workshop's Spongia sandblast, with the smooth, undulating rim revealing pinpricks of birdseye and a stylish, ornate band of silver lending contrast.- Jeffery Sitts
