Paul Cézanne, Sainte-Victoire Mountain,1890, Musée D'Orsay, Paris
Paul Cézanne,a French painter from the late 19th century, is regarded as a true precursor of modern art. His artistic approach, characterised by large volumes, influenced many generations of artists and played a major role in the emergence of the Cubist movement, which sought to break away from traditional artistic conventions.
Among Cézanne's many works, there are over 87 depictions of Mount Sainte Victoire. In our bouquet, dedicated to this painting, we sought to capture the fascination that we, like Cézanne, feel for this limestone massif. So our florists used double lilies to represent this mountain, and played with the blue-green shades of thistles and tracheliums to create a harmonious transition between the trees and the rest of the landscape.
To evoke the background of the painting, we chose peach statice and pink phlox, which give a feeling of freshness and echo the colours of the painting.
With this floral arrangement, we invite you to feel the summer mountain breeze, just as Cézanne's painting suggests.
Each season, Aquarelle's florists are committed to offering you a collection of bouquets inspired by works of art by great painters.
Like a painter who uses canvas, brushes and paints to create his work, our florists have designed and composed the bouquets in the collection using a palette of fresh flower colours.
The approach is the same, the gestures similar, the creation unique and personal.
