Former secondary school teacher John Myatt became embroiled in what Scotland Yard call ‘the biggest art fraud of the 20th century’ after his forgeries fooled experts around the world.
His spring 2020 collection sees him tackle some of history’s best-loved artists, including Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet.
This piece is inspired by the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. John adds: “On closer inspection of the original painting, I realised it was not one pear tree, but two which had grown together and were intertwined. I like to think of it as an image of love. I think that was in Van Gogh’s mind when he was painting the piece: love, blossom, bloom and happiness.”
