Product Description

Vive La Paix (GK206) is as sweet and lazy as a summer day. Painterly images of birds and the sun float in white on a deep azure strap like clouds passing across the sky.  A brilliant and shimmering hue, the strap is rendered in signature Swatch plastic, with a clear plastic case around the dial. The dial, an easy field of cornflower blue, is empty of numbers except for a 3 at the right.  To the left sits a friendly print of a hen in the sun, a warm scene from a country farmyard. This Swatch Art Special from Dutch artist Corneille seems made of whimsy and summer, the perfect complement to a dreamy afternoon. 

Artist Biography

Corneille

Dutch painter and printmaker Corneille was a founding member of the European Expressionist Movement known as CoBrA, and was one of the most dynamic Expressionist painters of the group. Corneille is known for his use of brilliant colour, partial abstraction, and his choice to look for inspiration to children's art, art created in hospitals, African art, and folk art rather than to the tradition academic canon.  He was also an accomplished lithographer, manipulating the medium to create powerfully dark and surreal images.
