Paul Gauguin, Riders on the beach,1902, Stavros Niarchos Collection, Greece
Paul Gauguin, an artist of the late nineteenth century, fits in the footsteps of the Impressionists by proposing very personal works, based on his own experience of travel. The artist focused on representing landscapes with pure colors in an idyllic environment.
This canvas, painted during his Tahitian period, depicts men and women on horseback, riding towards the distance on a Polynesian beach of pink sand. Our airy composition with soft colors evokes the atmosphere of a sunrise. While the carnations and lisianthus resonate with the different pink shades of the sand. The blue ageratums evokes the tones of the sky and the Pacific Ocean. The horses are represented by the hypericums.
This poetic bouquet in pastel tones will transport you to the other side of the globe, to a dreamy Polynesia, straight out of a dream. Like Paul Gauguin's painting, marked by sharp and tender colors, this composition is a real invitation to escape.
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.
