Pierre Bonnard, Red-roofed seafront (survey),1933
Pierre Bonnard, is an unclassifiable French painter. Nicknamed the "Japanese nabi" because of his strong influence on Japanese prints and the masters of ukiyo-e, he was also involved in many decorative works and produced a large number of lithographs.
By working on the evocative power of colour, this oil painting study also seeks to represent landscapes in a different way. This painting reflects Bonnard's characteristic style, which preferred to capture fleeting moments and sensory impressions rather than faithfully reproducing reality.
In his eye, the sea and sky intermingle in pink and blue reflections. Just like in our composition, where blue nigella and pink lisianthus and gypsophila intertwine. In this painting, the red roofs upset the balance, as represented in our bouquet by the anigozanthos.
Drowned in this strange perspective, this place of inspiration with its dreamlike light transcends the natural beauty of the sea. Embracing this soft summer landscape with his eyes, the painter transcribes the astonishing perspective and the emotion felt. Like an ode to travel, our bouquet is a nostalgic reminder of a day at the beach.
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.
