Edgar Degas, Pink dancers,1876
Degas is one of the founders members of the Impressionist group , nevertheless his work differs by the Themes he chooses : ballets, operas, horse racing , because he set out to represent movement and life.
The painting reflects Degas' interest in ballet performances and their dancers. The painter's tight framing plunges the viewer into the midst of the ballerinas on stage.
The vaporous tutus in various shades of pink evoke flower corollas.
Our florists chose lisianthus and pompon roses to retranscribe the different shades of pink while ruscus and bupleurum recall the plant wall of the set.
Beyond their colors, the flowers in the bouquet reflect the play of light and shadow, as well as the textures of the painting.
The lisianthus swirl in the image of the tutus, while the roses are similar to those in the dancers' hair.
Aquarelle's artisan florists are keen to offer you each season a collection of flower bouquets inspired by works of art by great painters.
Like a painter who uses canvas, brushes and paints for his creation, our florists have designed and composed the bouquets of the collection with a color palette of fresh flowers. The approach is the same, the gestures similar, the creation unique and personal.
The objective ? Put art at the heart of everyday life, and help people discover or rediscover paintings through bouquets that translate their colors, style and spirit. Let yourself be drawn into the discovery of the world of art and of flowers by spotting the connections between the painting and the bouquet!
