Socks by Ruysch (Striped)
In art, color is the essential ingredient. It’s the balance of specific colors which make every painting unique and thus, connects to our senses.
Your pair of socks is inspired by one of the many colorful paintings made by the 17th-century painter Rachel Ruysch. The pattern design reveals the color palette behind this simple, yet touching flower still life, painted at the age of 76 with behind her a life full of family happiness and great professional succes. For a woman painter quite rare in the history of art as women were not allowed to enter art schools for a long time.
