Monet Water Lilies Scarf (16” x 60”)

This elegant and colorful 100% silk scarf made in Vienna, is a
silkscreened reproduction of an original oil painting depicting water lilies by French Impressionist, Claude Monet (1840-1926). It portrays the artist’s flower garden at Giverny, which was a central subject of his life’s work.

Rendered in a painterly fashion, it features an overall pattern of red, green and lavender hues common to Monet’s world. Generously sized, it is made with black, hand-rolled edges.

This scarf celebrates the genius of creativity like that found in all disciplines of art — including the world of music, voice and theater, as well as costume and set design, which all work together to create a magnificent experience like that seen at the Metropolitan Opera.

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
