Watercolor Pretty

{ via }

Watercolors make us smile. Their delicacy and their femininity grounded in art fills up our heart and fulfills almost an urgency in our soul. There’s something so intensely pretty but also wonderfully intelligent about them.

Watercolor began seemingly in the Egyptian times but is most notably related to the Renaissance period. “The German Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) who painted several fine botanical, wildlife and landscape watercolors, is generally considered among the earliest exponents of the medium. Among the many 20th-century artists who produced important works in watercolor, mention must be made of Wassily Kandinsky, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee, Egon Schiele and Raoul Dufy; in America the major exponents included Charles Burchfield, Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Demuth, and John Marin, 80% of whose total output is in watercolor.”

These days, modern watercolor has become more and more popular and is generally regarded as fine art.

We love this idea! Fine art on for our new Plum pretty Sugar for BHLDN collection. The idea of a robe or romper or pretty pajamas as art is so lovely to think about!
