A leading figure of the Fauvism movement, Kees Van Dongen is known for his portraits of women in high society and thus perfectly captured the bold and elegant fashion of the 1920s and Art Deco fashion. Here, an opulent woman from the 1920s is captured in red with fur, pearls and a hat by world-famous art forger turned "Genuine Fakes" artist John Myatt.
This majestic masterpiece is the perfect way to add a touch of art history to your home, complemented by a bespoke gold frame moulded from original designs by 18th century cabinet-maker Thomas Chippendale. Read more about John Myatt's incredible story here.
Featured art: 'The Lady In Red (In the Style of Kees Van Dongen 1925)' by John Myatt, £17,500.
Elizabeth Taylor is known for being a 1940-50s silver screen and fashion icon thanks to her perfect smile, covetable curves and innate sense of style. Her style redefined the classic Hollywood aesthetic and her image has been immortalised through the many influential images of her that filled magazines throughout the century. Her golden glamour is still an inspiration for artists today including the recent sell out artist Johnny Depp.
Here, contemporary artist duo the Bisaillon Brothers have captured an iconic portrait of the actress as part of their Pop Collection. Epitomising the Bisaillon Brothers' interest in mid-20th century pop culture and 21st century technology, this artwork sees the duo combine each of their techniques and philosophies in a vibrant mosaic of different mediums. These include: resin, acrylic paint, graphic design and code. They also captured 1990s fashion icon Kate Moss in a unique wall sculpture here.
Interpreting the world around us in the form of recognisable figures and iconic events, the bright colours of the Pop Collection combine with their serene resin texture to add a vibrant and modern splash to any home.
Featured art: 'Liz Taylor' by the Bisaillon Brothers, £3,950.
Infused with the glamour of Paris, this bold original oil painting by Pascale Taurua boasts cooling swathes of blue with red accents.
The Parisian artist, who is continually inspired by her home as the contemporary Fashion Capital of the world, takes around 2 weeks to complete just one of her seductive originals. Finding a balance between "restraint and madness", she creates boldly coloured backgrounds that shine from behind her sitters thus creating a bolder impact and a sense of unity between the vibrancy of fashion and its surroundings. Her models are often decked in bold contemporary styles from stilettos to trainers.
