#222 - Hound Pointing by Constant Troyon

This is the celebrated Hound Pointing by Constant Troyon (1810-1865), now
housed in The Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, Massachusetts. As a highly
esteemed member of the venerable French Academy, Constant Troyon enjoyed success
during his lifetime, and his memorable paintings of rural animals can be
found in the world's greatest museums.

In this ingenious image of Hound Pointing, Troyon positions the viewer in
the midst of the hunt, with its tension and excitement. Visually placing us
immediately behind the dog, among the wind-swept leaves and scrub of a wide
ditch, Hound Pointing invites us to emotionally partake in the energetic scene.
The pointer's elegant turn marks its sudden thrill, as it balances, sniffing
the air - perhaps picking up the scent of a hidden squirrel or rabbit.
Troyon's hound is all anticipation. Our team of artists has translated the dynamic
Hound Pointing into an oversized chart so that you, the stitching enthusiast,
can recreate this masterpiece with an equal verve and sense of the 'woodsy'
adventure.

#49 - The River by Claude Monet

In this exquisite work, The River, the incomparable Claude
Monet (pronounced Monay), has captured the effects of the morning sun as it reflects off the
water's surface and filters through the trees on shore. With wife, Camille,
and son in tow, Monet settled in a small village on the Seine during the Spring
of 1868. It is there that he painted The River. Focusing on the effects of
light on the forms and masses in nature, the fluid and variable surface of the
river Seine mirrors houses, trees, and hills in sparkling colors. To the
bottom left of the picture, a pensive Camille becomes one with this shimmering
environment. Dematerialized in a striped pattern of light and dark folds of
silk, her bonnet resting on the grass, Camille sits by the boat that Monet
sometimes used when painting the Seine from a point out on the river.
This universally acclaimed picture is housed in the Art Institute of
Chicago, where The River continues to delight art lovers. Our team of artists has
translated this vivid painting into an oversized chart so that you can
recreate this priceless treasure with equal poetry.

#50 - The Japanese Footbridge (Le Pont Japonais) by Claude Monet

As with all his 'water lilies' paintings, The Japanese Footbridge
demonstrates the extraordinary ability of Monet to capture the exquisite color and light
found in the ponds that grace the property of his home in Giverny. As
arguably the most successful and famous of the French Impressionists, this
brilliantly talented artist was renowned not only for his paintings drenched in the
fresh and clear beauty of nature's splendor, but also for his horticultural
skills. Monet's elegant gardens in Argenteuil and Giverny have become a part of
France's cultural heritage, even as his memorable paintings have become the
hallmark of Western art.
In his signature style, the artist employed the technique of broken color
which creates a vision of trembling jewel tones and vibrating light. In one
of the most beloved of his 'water lilies' series, the Japanese Footbridge,
housed in the National Gallery of Art, painted white flowers, whose fragrance one
can almost smell, sit gently on languid lily pads of pinks and greens amongst
surrounding of saturated browns and greens upon the tranquil surface of the
lily pond. Our fine artists have translated the beauty of this scene into an
oversized chart so that you can recreate this priceless treasure with the maximum
of ease and enjoyment.

Project Information:

  • Number of Colors: 64
  • Stitch Count: 295 w x 240 h
  • Aida cloth color: white
  • Finished Size when stitched on 14 count fabric: 21"w x 17"h
  • no backstitching.

#181 - Vase with Flowers

Kit Price: $45.00


Chart Price $13.00

 

#181 - Vase with Flowers by Jan Brueghel, the Elder

This is the exquisite Vase with Flowers by Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625). Born in Antwerp to an eminent family of painters, Jan was distinguished from his equally famous father and brother by his moniker, the "Velvet Brueghel." Best known for  meticulous still-lifes teeming with exotic flowers, full of elegant colors and rich textures, the Dutch artist reflected the Tulipomania that swept through the Netherlands during the late sixteenth century.

Vase with Flowers is a bouquet painting, replete with what became known as "Rembrandt tulips." It was likely created in 1605, just three years after the Velvet Brueghel became dean of the Antwerp painter's guild. Painted in his signature style, this extraordinary picture exhibits the clarity of color and unsurpassed illusionism that earned Jan his deserved celebrity. Here, countless different flowers provide a veritable encyclopedia of flora, which allow the viewer to enjoy the beauty of blossoms that do not usually flourish at the same time of year. An exemplar of light, color, and illusionism, this quintessential bouquet exemplifies the virtuosity of the Velvet Brueghel. Our team of European trained artists has translated this elegant and eloquent masterpiece into an oversized chart, so that you, the stitching enthusiast, can recreate this painting with equal poetry.

Project Information:

  • Number of Colors: 40
  • Stitch Count: 154w X 196h
  • Finished Size: 11" x 14" when stitched on 14 count black Aida cloth.


#182 - Vase with Irises

Kit Price: $45.00


Chart Price $13.00

 

#182 - Vases with Irises by Vincent Van Gogh

This is the exquisite Vase with Irises by Vincent Van Gogh, the renown and expressive Impressionist painter. Van Gogh's dramatic sensitivity  and inspired artistic freedom far surpassed most of his contemporaries. However, his exalted talent did not spare this devout artist from suffering mental despair and a suppressed form of epilepsy. Before tragically ending his own life, Van Gogh's penetrating vision produced moving portraits, symbolic landscapes, and revelatory still-lifes that unravel the great mysteries hiding beneath surface appearances.

Vase with Irises entices the viewer's eyes with an opulent tapestry of golds and blue-violets. The verve of the Van Gogh's signature style is forcefully brought to our attention in this extraordinary piece, perhaps explaining its enduring popularity. This universally acclaimed picture is housed in the Vincent Van Gogh Museum located in Amsterdam. Our team of European trained artists has translated this elegant and eloquent masterpiece into an oversized chart, so that you, the stitching enthusiast, can recreate this painting with equal poetry.

Project Information:

  • Number of Colors: 41
  • Stitch Count: 169w X 211h
  • Finished Size: 12" x 15" when stitched on 14 count white Aida cloth.


#183 - Floral Tray

#183 - Fruit with Vase and Flowers by Sevres

This is the elegant Fruit with Vase and Flowers, an outstanding example of Sevres porcelain production during the French Restoration. Created around 1830, the original tray displays the delicately translucent colors so characteristic of Sevres workmanship that it's name became synonymous with porcelain itself.  Founded in 1738 at the Chateau du Vincennes, the Sevres factory was instantly embraced by the aristocracy. The company so enjoyed royal patronage it was eventually nationalized by Louis XV himself. The monarch so loved Sevres china that he sold it out of his private quarters to heedful courtiers. Naturally, the factory enjoyed a virtual monopoly over this highly priced decorative art during the last years of the ancien regime. 

Adapted from a porcelain tray in the Royal Collections of the Rosenborg Palace in Copenhagen, the delightful Fruit with Vase and Flowers extends to the viewer  a luxurious sense of Sevres originality.   Our European trained artists and art historians have translated this decorative cornucopia for your stitching enjoyment.

Project Information:

  • Number of Colors: 43
  • Stitch Count: 204w X 160h
  • Finished Size: 14" x 11" when stitched on 14 count beige Aida cloth.
