Water lilies stole - Orangerie Museum

  • € 49
This silk stole is inspired by the fascinating Nymphéas (water lilies) of Claude Monet.

For nearly thirty years Monet was interested in the representation of the same plant species: the water lily. The first canvases, painted from 1897 onwards, are small, almost square. More than two hundred and fifty canvases were painted on this theme: nature in its primordial forms: water, light, vegetation, flower stains. Wishing to participate in the Victory of 1918, Monet proposed to offer two large panels to the State and asked Clémenceau to act as a middleman: these eight vast compositions were eventually installed, after the death of the painter but according to his instructions, in two large oval rooms of the Orangerie.

Finish: Hand-rolled hem.
Hand-rolled is a refined hemming technique based on the skills of hand sewing.
The craft of roulotting, once widespread in France, is now disappearing. Only a few well-known brands still practice it.
