Try as we might to compare the two, modern artwork always seems to fall short
against the charm and tradition of the grand works created during earlier centuries by the masters.
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.
A master of equine power and form, George Stubbs was a self-taught painter with many an aristocratic patron. Barons, dukes and marquises all commissioned Stubbs; in 1791, Stubbs even received the patronage of the Prince of Wales, who appears on this uniquely-shaped vase. Astride his horse with his hunting dogs in the lead, George IV of the United Kingdom presented a stately air.
