Carlo Mollino has been credited with saying, “Everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic.”
After Mollino’s death in 1973, a huge collection of his erotic Polaroids were discovered, each featuring a provocatively-posed pin-up impeccably coordinated with a colorful backdrop, elaborate costume, or piece of furniture.
The vast archive of footage posthumously uncovered another side to the architect’s creativity, that was unbeknownst to the pubic when he was still alive.
However, Mollino is known for more than just a stash of secret erotic Polaroids.
Casa Mollino was the 18th-century styled villa that Carlo Mollino designed as a tableau for his pursuits.
Constructed on the foothills of the Alps, and benefitting from majestic views over Lake Maggiore, the Casa Cattaneo endures as a unique and complete surviving expression of Carlo Mollino’s distinctive architecture and interior design.
It is the only private villa ever designed by Mollino and is one of very few of his structures to remain intact.
There is nothing quite like riding in the country!
I had a little pony,
His name was Dapple-Gray,
I lent him to a lady,
To ride a mile away.
She whipped him, she slashed him,
She rode him through the mire;
I would not lend my pony now
For all the lady’s hire. (Mother Goose)
Must admit I am not totally convinced this is all the work of Stanton. The women are characteristic of his style but the man is not.
It seems it may be an example of someone feeling their have the right to tamper with an the work of an artist. I hope I am mistaken. Comments? Proof?
On another note, I like the shoes! The platform shoes on the right are worth noting.
