Claude Monet, The lady with the umbrella
A leader of the impressionist movement, Claude Monet conveys the ephemeral quality of natural light, wind and water. The painter captures fleeting moments; he paints impressions. The elements which compose his paintings almost seem to come to life.
Mirroring Monet's painting 'The lady with the umbrella', our composition with wildflowers and grasses signals the return of spring. We also feature blue thistles and white sweet peas, which are reminiscent of the radiant blue skies and soft clouds of Monet's composition.
In this bouquet, we discover a floral universe which reveals itself to us; where a few pale pink astilbes enhance this composition, where rustling strands of panicum grass and ruscus, delicates grasses, convey the wind's movement.
This bouquet reflects the impressionist paining : capturing a living moment, which only our memories can recreate. With this floral composition, you can experience and relive this moment of springtime.
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.
