The "Le Oceanidi" drawings are part of one of Fornasetti's best known series; the Themes & Variations collection, which includes perhaps one of his best sources of inspiration, the mystery of femininity. Here, Fornasetti has given shells, one of his favourite naturalistic forms, the attributes of women's bodies

Piero Fornasetti lived and worked in Milan from 1935 until his death in 1988. Described  as a designer of dreams, he established himself with an enduring reputation as a visionary with a formidable skill and talent, his work featuring startling contradictions influenced by the many surrealist artists he admired
