Auguste Renoir, Figures on the beach , 1890, Metropolitan Museum, New-York
Pierre-Auguste Renoir, an artist of the late nineteenth century, is part of the impressionist movement by his ability to capture the effects of light and its variations. The painter seeks to represent a moment and the transience of movement.
In response to Figures on the Beach, our composition in soft pastel colors evokes moments of summer. On a stretch of warm sand, two female figures exchange glances, while a young boy appears in the background, playing by the water. While the carnations and roses resonate with the soft fabrics of flowing skirts, the blue nigella and delphinium help evoke the soft blue tones of a peaceful sea.
This luminous bouquet will remind you of a memory, a moment spent by the water. Like impressionist paintings, this composition with its sweet summer scent is a true invitation to travel.
Aquarelle's artisan florists and the Ecole du Louvre have collaborated to create a capsule collection of flower bouquets inspired by the works of art of the master painters.
In the same way that a painter uses canvas, paint brushes and paints for their creation, our florists have conceived and composed the bouquets of the collection with a fresh floral colour palette.
They apply the same approach, using similar gestures to create a unique and personal creation.
The aim? To put art at the heart of the everyday, in order to discover or rediscover paintings through bouquets which translate the colours, style and spirit of the artwork.
