Romance du Art Nouveau

2016 — Annual Collection

Preaching the philosophy, “Art should be the way of life”, the biggest art movement, Art Nouveau, changed the history of art and paved a new direction for many famous artists including Gaudi, Tiffany, Van Gogh and Monet. But few know that many of these famous artists were inspired from the irregularity, curved lines and vibrant colours of the Japanese woodblock art, Ukiyo-e, that eventually created the Art Nouveau. In fact, Van Gogh was an avid collector of Ukiyo-e and painted copies in oil of Ukiyo-e prints. Inspired from the oriental elements of Ukiyo-e and infusing it with modern angles of the Art Nouveau, Simone Jewels reignites the magic and beauty and brings to life Modern Art Nouveau of the 21st century.
