FLORINE ASCH IN WONDERLAND



 
mariage-10


A-Gent of Style is delighted to have recently come across another great illustrator, not of interiors this time (some of you might remember the blog posts on
Jeremiah Goodman and also Walter Gay), but of an artist who creates sumptuous, original cards through watercolours. Whether they are greeting cards, invitations, birth announcements, catalogues, menus, table decorations or press releases, Florine Asch captures the joy, life, energy, spirit and sometimes humour of her subjects and also of the locations and memories from her travels in Italy, Egypt, Africa or her native Alsace, ranging from snake charmers in Morocco, the Kremlin domes, Maharajas palaces to Flamenco musicians, wild life in safaris or the Paris Opera ballet dancers. Some of these works have now been published into beautifully sketched books.

Over the years, Asch has imposed her talent as an illustrator for many prestigious companies. The antique dealer Patrick Perrin exhibited her drawings in 1991 in his Parisian galerie and her first client was Marie-Hélène de Rothschild and many others followed suit: the Prince of Liechtenstein, Guerlain,  Dior, Cartier, Hermès, Vuitton, the Paris Opera House, Fauchon, Ladurée, Plaza Athénée
(chef Alain Ducasse is a fan) and The Ritz to name but a few . She also illustrates for various magazines.


A-Gent of Style is a week away from celebrating his 30+ birthday and could think of a way or two to use Asch’s services to send his invitations.
