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.
Many people may recognise Théophile Steinlen’s artwork at first sight as Le Chat Noir
, but they probably don’t know much of its origins. This iconic black cat poster actually belonged to Le Chat Noir
in France’s bohemian Montmartre district, and become synonymous with the world’s first modern cabaret.
Steinlen’s famous artwork has now been applied to this ceramic vase, with French art nouveau colours and stylisation. It’s also beautiful
as a gift,
or as a statement piece in the home.
