Socks by Van Leen | Striped
In art, color is the essential ingredient. It’s the balance of specific colors which make every painting unique and thus, connects to our senses. Your pair of socks is inspired by a tiny watercolor painted in 1763 by the Dutch painter Willem van Leen: ‘Bouquet of tulips, violets, blue grapes and dotters’.
The pattern design reveals the color palette behind this lovely fragile bouquet that Van Leen must have discovered in the peaceful Jardin des Plantes in the heart of Paris, on the eve of the French Revolution.
