Resting her elbow on a pillow and with blusher brush in hand, a young woman with colourful rosy cheeks puts on her makeup in front of her pocket mirror. Her gracious silhouette is surrounded by a multitude of vibrant, gay flowers. Her powder pink robe falls in fluid movements before her, drawing serpentine lines, giving the illustration an alluring, light and vaporous atmosphere. The house of the perfumer Louis Toussaint Piver is the oldest French perfume house still in production. Originally namedTo the flower queen, this poster, created for the perfumery house reflects all the scents of flowers and the perfumes of the brand. Subscribing to the Art Nouveau movement, this poster shows an aesthetic with curved lines which highlights the elegance and coquettishness of the young woman.
The bouquet appears to come straight out of the poster's floral background, similar to a theatrical decor : the small pink and bicoloured carnations, pink and white anemones, scented blue hyacinths and white waxflowers mingle harmoniously to create acomposition in pink hues, light and full of freshness.
The fragrance of the bouquet created by our artisan florists conveys the scent and dreamlike quality of the L.T. Piver poster, oscillating between classicism and modernity
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.
For this third collection, Aquarelle aims to celebrate the visual arts.
