Egon Schiele, Four Trees, 1917, Belvedere Palace, Vienna
Egon Schiele is an Austrian artist of the 20th century. Despite his short career, Egon Schiele managed to express his feelings through broken lines, making his style unique.
This landscape invites you to meditate in front of four trees lined up on green hills whose colour echoes the ruscus of our floral composition. A sky streaked with colour-changing clouds serves as a backdrop to a mountain range. The peachy reflections of the roses recall this mysterious beyond. The sun disk stands out in the centre of the composition with its ominous orange colour like the only dianthus in our bouquet. The tree on the right, well branched and bushy, exudes confidence, while the bare tree with its spindly branches conveys melancholy.
Nature seems to reflect complex feelings. The anigozanthos branches emerging from the flowers mimic the fragile leaves in the painting. The artist's tormented soul creates an impenetrable work of art, which our florists translate into a subtle floral selection.
Our bouquet with its intense, dark colours gives an enigmatic image of autumn, like Schiele's painting. A season to reflect on the transience of life, art and nature remind us that one thing endures: the beauty in the eyes of those who look.
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.
