Hermes vintage silk scarf, hand rolled, 28" x 28"

This delightful scene is clearly inspired by the 16th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, a protégé of the Habsburg court. The artist owed his fame to his flair for metamorphosis. A basket of vegetables or fruit, a catch of multiple varieties of fish, or a pile of books, would become a portrait whose true nature remained hidden at first glance. Henri d’Origny makes this virtuoso approach his own, taking a fresh bouquet of flowers as his subject-matter of choice. A lady side-saddle rider is described in iris and daffodil flowers, riding a prancing horse – all drawn in an array of petals, foliage and posy ribbons, extending to the egret in flight, and the leaping dog.
