Petrusse has created a scarf inspired by the work of Gustave Fayet, for the exhibition “Paysages rêvés : 1908 – 1925”.
The “Madeleine” scarf, made with silk and watercolours
At the end of his life, Fayet particularly used the watercolours on blotting paper to create several paintings about landscapes and dreams. Petrusse has created the silk scarf “Madeleine” as a free inspiration of these watercolours. The result is a sweet mix of aqatic and floral patterns.
The scarf is available at Fontfroide abbey, at Fayet Museum in Béziers and at Saint André abbey (Fayet has bought this abbey in 1916 after Fontfroide in 1908).
