Edouard Manet, Claude Monet painting in his workshop, 1874
Zola's favorite painter, Édouard Manet embodies the aesthetic revolution of the end of the 19th century: the end of academicism in favor of the realism of contemporary life.
This oil on canvas represents the painter Claude Monet in the middle of a painting session with his wife.
The title of the work has an ironic vocation because Monet's studio is a boat, this underlines the importance given by the impressionists to the concept of en plein air painting , as close as possible to nature.
Manet, in this painting, deliberately alters his style to try to approach that of his friend Monet, an impressionism by nature more distinct and takes up one of Monet's favorite themes, namely water.
Manet sought to create an impression of movement and life that our florists transcribed in the bouquet with the sprigs of panicum which lightly translate the movement of the water.
The soft but distinct colors are also present in this bouquet by the lisianthus which enhance our rural assembly with a deep blue.
Our florists offer you with this bouquet the opportunity to experience this moment of creation in this green setting.
Aquarelle's artisan florists are keen to offer you each season a collection of flower bouquets inspired by works of art by great painters.
Like a painter who uses canvas, brushes and paints for his creation, our florists have designed and composed the bouquets of the collection with a color palette of fresh flowers. The approach is the same, the gestures similar, the creation unique and personal.
The objective ? Put art at the heart of everyday life, and help people discover or rediscover paintings through bouquets that translate their colors, style and spirit. Let yourself be drawn into the discovery of the world of art and of flowers by spotting the connections between the painting and the bouquet!
