“Ascoli Landscape with Damsel and Jester”
I love to imagine Ascoli transfigured in a dreamlike and timeless atmosphere.
For the realization of this plate, I drew a preliminary study sketch of the characters. In fact, I don’t like majolica that depicts stereotyped subjects in static postures and always with the same expressions. Of course the sketch serves only as a guide, because the decoration of this plate, as in all my majolica, is done entirely freehand.
