Manet and Modern Beauty

The first Art Institute exhibition devoted exclusively to Édouard Manet in over 50 years focuses on the transformation of the artist’s style in his later years.

“Manet and Modern Beauty”, an exhibition taking place in Chicago this summer as it displays one of a kind breathtaking art pieces made by Manet himself. Manet was an artist who specialised in very beautiful paintings with colourful flowers, impressive array of portraits of fashionable and beautiful women. He captured charming and ravishing feminized ladies and silhouettes with delicate touches of color and nature. His splendid selection of about 50 paintings, pastels and numerous works offers exquisite proof of the artists role and the pre-eminent French painter of modern life.

This year we were fortunate to be contacted and asked if we would be interested in collaborating with the exhibit where they selected some of our custom hats to put on display, after a couple of days working with the institute we agreed on several hat designs which showcased and complimented Manet’s wonderful art. These hats have beautiful shades of soft pastel colors, with many beautiful contour shapes of abstract flowers and are inspired by nature and female elegance and blooming beauty transforming into structural and stylish headwear pieces.

We worked hard on this project producing and perfecting the styles on each design and embellishments that we hand crafted and incorporated into the designs. Having many clients in Chicago, we informed our customers and recommended them going to see the exhibition this summer and to take a look at the custom hats I made for the exhibit.

The feedback has been positive and thoroughly enjoyed by all and has even resulted in a couple of orders asking to replicate the exact hats shown in the exhibition!

If you’re in Chicago feel free to go and check out the exhibition!
