High Art — This Season’s Prints Capture the Art World’s Dynamic Energy and Boundless Creativity
From aquatic paintings like Claude Monet’s “Waves Breaking” and Hokusai’s “The Great Wave,” floral still life works like Edouard Manet’s “Carnations and Clematis in a Crystal Vase” and Pablo Picasso’s “Flowers,” and abstract works like those by Brazilian painter Beatric Milhazes, this season’s garments nod to the storied masterpieces hanging in the walls of the Loeuvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Hermitage Museum.
Blossoms resemble those in watercolor or oil paintings. Landscape photographs are digitized and given an abstract, esoteric quality.Geometric shapes are arranged to take on a kaleidoscopic, mind-bending, surrealist air. The fine mist of an aerosol can and the bright colors favored by graffiti artists are replicated on street art-inspired designs.
This season, then, you can show off your fashion acumen and your mastery of both the fine art and street art worlds in one fell swoop. Take a look at some of our fave pieces!
