Finnish Woman

One price €49.00

Deep in thought, the young girl in the paintingLa Finlandaise, or the 'Finnish Woman' by Sonia Delaunay, gazes at the horizon beyond our view. Represented in an intimate moment, with a pensive air, inviting us into a different world, which is left to our imagination. Despite her youth, her features reveal a great sense of maturity which inspires our respect.

Sonia Delaunay, a French artist of Ukrainian heritage, explored all artistic mediums during her career, without any distinction. After taking an initial interest in interior decoration and fashion, the artist immersed herself inpainting. It's in this universe that she developed a bold and frank style using colour, which she used in an almost primitive manner, as shown in La Finlandaise.

Aquarelle's artisan florists wanted to pay homage to this colourful artwork with anarray of flowers in flamboyant shades, : cool green chrysanthemums mingled with lisianthus and carnations, in warm orangey pink tones. The textures are also eye-catching : the clearly defined chrysanthemums intermingle with soft carnations. The result ? An original and vivacious combination.

The bouquet, like the painting, takes us on a voyage into the world of colour and the introversion of La Finlandaise of Sonia Delaunay. Which world does she transport you to ?

The young Lady with Gloves

One price €45.00

In a cinematic close-up frame, La Jeune Fille aux Gants or 'The Young Girl in Gloves' seems to hide her face with the brim of her white hat, shielding herself from an exterior gaze or bright light. Her strong stage presence, and attitude capture our attention… She has all the attributes of a Hollywood actress. Her body, caressed by the fabric of her dress, exudes powerful sensuality, emphasised by the red crimson of her lips.

Whilst the painting seems to present a limited colour palette, Tamara de Lempicka's true talent is demonstrated by thethoughtful use of light and shade. In the same spirit, the bouquet creates unique effects using light, thanks to the flowers in a thousand shades of green. The dash of red orchid contrasts with the monochrome theme, bringing a seductive element to the composition.

A highly fashionable artist, Tamara de Lempicka found her style and inspiration in the actresses of silent cinema of her time. Her theatrical gaze focused on audacious women and her style is characterised by stark lines and contrasts, which is also celebrated in the bouquet.

With this floral, seductive composition we are transported to 30's Hollywood. So, shall we swing dance ?

A young woman kneeling

One price €45.00

A young woman kneeling invites us to contemplate : equally charming as she is enigmatic, she draws us in with herair of mystery. Is she contemplating ? Or is she filled with a sense of melancholy ? Whilst the clarity of her skin shows her softness and vulnerability, the violet mist in a thousand shades and her dark hair reveal analmost impenetrable side to her.

Roses and spray roses, purple cosmos… Our artisan florists have chosen flowers in tones which transport us to a universe which is both gentle and inaccessible, where shade and light delicately blend. In a style which is reminiscent of the hair and dress of the young girl, sea lavender and panicgrass convey delicacy and lightness.

A female artist of the 19th century, Aimée Brune stuns spectators with the perfection of her brush strokes. During her career, she often exhibited from her Parisian studio. For women, this event was a platform for self-expression, a rare opportunity at the time. At the time it was exhibited, Une jeune fille à genoux or 'A young girl kneeling' became the object of attention and scrutiny for many.
A painting which was executed with such fine skill could only have been the work of a masculine artist, according to popular opinion in the 19th century. The surprise and enthusiasm of critics and public visitors could not have been greater when the artist, Aimée Brune, revealed herself to be the author.

A floral composition which gives us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in a timeless moment.

Devant la Psyché

One price €55.00

Saisie dans un moment d'intimité, sa toilette, la jeune femme Devant la Psyché psyché fait face à son miroir, où son âme, , comme le suggère le titre du tableau. Elle tente de dompter les dernières mèches de sa coiffure dans un intérieur à la fois chaleureux et froid, aux tons bleus et orange.

Peintre de l’intime, Berthe Morisot saisit au vol des instants éphémères, quotidiens et sensibles. Contrairement à sa sœur, qui abandonne les pinceaux malgré un grand talent pour une vie plus « convenable », Berthe Morisot persiste dans le chemin de l’Art. Proche d’Edouard Manet et de l’impressionnisme, elle privilégie les représentations féminines, qu’elle peint avec volupté, et sensualité.

Par des fleurs aux différents tons et texturestelles que les œillets, les asclépias, les véroniques et les delphiniums, les artisans fleuristes d’Aquarelle ont voulu traduire la vivacité des coups de pinceaux de Berthe Morisot. La tubéreuse parfumée, de son côté, sollicite notre odorat, en nous transportant dans les senteurs parfumées du bain de la jeune fille.

Le bouquet aurait parfaitement sa place au sein de ce tableau se faisant l’écho de cette jeune femme énigmatique. Dans le reflet vague du miroir, tout comme dans le bouquet, on ne retrouve pas uniquement un visage ou des fleurs, mais bienune intention, une personnalité, une histoire.
