For displaying your beautiful blooms or simply to jazz up a mantelpiece, a striking vase can transform a room.
Different types of flowers require different styles of vases for displaying them to their very best, and some vases can be just as beautiful displayed on their own without any flowers.
Here at John Beswick we have a range of lovely vases that have been inspired by famous artists and these striking works speak for themselves. From Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting of The Kiss, to Lowrie’s naive and charming Market Scene, you are sure to find a vase to suit your taste and your room decor. They will become a talking point and the envy of your friends and neighbours.
We are excited to offer 20% off on selected vases until 30 June 2019.
This striking piece of art is one of Austrian artist Gustav Klimt’s most iconic pieces. A deeply private character, Klimt is often referred to as the symbolist master and The Kiss was inspired by the gold speckled Byzantine mosaics in Venice and Ravenna, sparking his “Golden Phase” and thus The Kiss, one of his most popular works.
Demonstrating that it was possible to create a picture using only variations of a single colour, the famous artist Vincent Van Gough painted four versions of sunflowers, primarily for his friend, the painter Paul Gauguin, who was a temporary guest at the Yellow House where he lived in Arles in the south of France in 1888. A well recognised image in art history, this unusually-shaped vase will sit perfectly as a standalone piece or as part of a group with other vases from our collection, bringing a touch of sunshine into your room.
This lovely cylindrical shaped vase is perfect for shorter blooms and showcases Monet’s artwork to perfection. Painted at his home in Giverny in 1883, The Water Lilies by Claude Monet are often considered by art critics to be his finest work, highlighting his enormous skill for outdoor painting as well as his appreciation of light and feeling for colour. During his lifetime he executed more than 250 oil paintings of the lily ponds with varying sunlight and at different times of the day.
L.S Lowry (1887-1976) is well known for painting industrial scenes of the North West of England in the mid 20th century. Offering an insight into English city life, his characteristic style of figures referred to as 'matchstick men' was a naive style, but brought him widespread recognition throughout his lifetime. This iconic painting explores the hustle and bustle of a Northern market town and will add an interesting touch of romanticism to your home.
This stunning vase with its beautiful curves features the striking strokes of one of Renoir's most celebrated masterpieces. The painting depicts a typical Sunday afternoon at the Moulin de la Galette where working class Parisians would dress up, socialise, dance and eat galettes (waffles or cake). An open-air dancehall and cafe, The Moulin de la Galette, was an open-air dancehall and café that was frequented by many artists living in Paris. Renoir attended Sunday afternoon dances and enjoyed watching the happy couples, for him providing the perfect setting for a painting.
So whether it is Monet, Lowrie, Klimt, Renoir or Van Gogh you can now enjoy their works in your home, creating an artistic display with these lovely vases that will complement your decor and display your beautiful flowers to make your room look truly amazing.
