Art was once only a privilege enjoyed by the kings and the royal families living in extravagant palaces. However, the rise of impression, and later Fauvism, cubism and modern art got rid of previous boundaries and limits. Poeple started looking for the meaning of "self". They followed their self-consciousness and thinking to interpret the shadows jumping on the tree branch, the breeze brushing the flowers and grass as well as the air going through the spectrum. The diversification of art has broadened people's vision, hence, the beauty of life has been recorded in non-conventional colors and forms.

After the Van Gogh series, Franz Collection launched "the realm of dreams - Philadelphia Museum of Art Collection". On the bottom of each piece of artwork on can find the trademark authorization of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Franz designers have transformed each canvas into porcelain and have infused the passion in the artwork of Gauguin, Monet, Modigiliani, Leger and Jan Gris. By applying coloring and sculpting techb\niques during creation the designers have showed the rich quality of each painting.
This pieces is inspired by Paul Gaugin's 1892 painting "The sacred mountain (Parahi Te Marae)".
The painting is inspired by Paul Cezanne's painting "Quartier Four; Auvers-sur-Pise ( Landscape, Auvers), 1873".
Cezanne is the father of modern art. He made a breakthrough by giving up the traditional and realistic frames. By using a solid and clear touch, he cut the countryside scene into geometrical patterns to create a new painting style. The mouth of the vase has a wavy design. The designer integrated soft lines and the technique to use a flat brush for thick paints in order to create gradation. He also showed the lively countryside scene with rich colors.
The inspiration comes from Modigliani’s 1917 painting “Blue Eyes” (portrait of Madame Jeanne Hébuteme). Modigliani was a master in painting the long necks of women. The woman in the painting “Blue eyes” was his lover, and the painting was named after her beautiful blue eyes. Modigiliani was influenced by the style of cubism.
The vase “Blue-eyed lover” depicts a woman with empty blue eyes, reflecting the mysterious inner soul of the painter. The simplified long face, the long neck and the wedged nose show the inner world of the artist and his love for the woman.
This pieces is inspired by Camille Pissaro's painting "Summer Landscape, Eragny, 1887 & 1902". Pissaro is the "Father of Impressionism". he used colors to show the glow of lights and shadows as well as natural scenes in the sunshine and air. In this Franz piece, the objects in the painting become 3-D sculpture and scatter evenly with 360 degrees on the vase. The sky scene in the painting decorates the mouth of the vase, and the trees extend to the wide sky. If one just looks at the vase from the front or back, it is like looking at a painting. One can follow the steps of cattle and wander around in the peaceful countryside.
