Try as we might to compare the two, modern artwork always falls short
against the charm and tradition of the grand works created before the
19th Century and prior.
From Degas to Vermeer and many great names in between, Silhouette d’Art
vases aim to capture the romance of the art of yesteryear. Created by
John Beswick, famous English ceramic-makers since 1894, these vases are
subtly shaped to suit the artwork they display – as well as any flowers
you choose to place within.
Katsushika Hokusai was one of the most prominent ukiyo-e
woodblock printers and painters of the Edo period of Japan, and is perhaps best known for his artwork The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.
Among his repertoire of artworks are further treasures, however; one of them, centred around birds and flowers, adorns this vase.
Hokusai’s beautiful print is applied to this ceramic vase, with its glorious deep blue hues and the depiction of a small bird hopping among the branches of a blossom tree. It’s beautiful as a gift,
or as a statement piece in the home.
