Vaporous as the sumptuous skirts of the Women in the Garden of Claude Monet, this bouquet is an anthem of elegance and an ode to the lightness of outdoor painting.
Roses, lisianthus, gypsophila, amni majus… Our florists have chosen flowers whose tones and textures exemplify this simple and careless scene.
Master of impressionism, Monet painted the painting in 1866 in the garden of his house near Ville-D'avray, a small paradise out of Paris. The artist seizes the fugacity of the moment and restores the summery atmosphere of the canvas. He focuses on immortalizing the fleeting moment by one look, the delicacy by one movement,the softness of one summer afternoon, ephemere like a flower.
The florists of Aquarelle, wanted to translate the liveliness of the brushstrokes of Claude Monet. They played with the textures of the flowers and the leaves in a wild composition, as if the flowers had been picked in the painter’s garden.
