The Ultimate Month Long Art Lovers Trip Tours Six Locations
VeryFirstTo unveiled what they describe as the ‘Ultimate art lovers trip’ in association with boutique scarf brand Babooshka Boo. The month-long luxurious six-country tour will take you to the locations that inspired 12 masterpieces by artists including Cézanne, Monet, Turner, Gaugain, Renoir, Hockney and Seurat. Locations include London, France, Italy, Tahity, Tunisia and Japan.
The trip starts in London, England where the you will visit Westminster, the location of Turner’s famous revolutionary impressionist masterpiece depicting the burning of the Houses of Parliament. Then off to Yorkshire where David Hockney created the bold and vibrant ‘Garrowby Hill’. The travellers will spend time exploring famed locations in France, including the town of Giverny, where Monet painted his famous ‘Water Lillies’ series.
After jetting to Venice and Lake Guarda in Italy to study the works of Canaletto and Klimt, the journey takes an exotic turn to the southern Pacific Ocean where the tour stops on the luxurious island of Tahiti. Tahiti famed for its idilic beauty, inspired Gauguin to create his mesmerising artwork that features the Tahitian people and landscape. Guaguin once said of his Tahitian paintings that he had been “eager to suggest a luxurious and untamed nature, a tropical sun that sets aglow everything around it…the equivalent of the grandeur, depth, and mystery of Tahiti when it must be expressed in one square meter of canvas.”
The global trip also takes you to Japan, where a visit to Mount Fuji will allow you to see the landscape that inspired one of the best-known pieces of Japanese Art – Hokusai’s ‘The Great Wave’. All travel will be business class and hotels have been specially selected to give guests a once in a life time experience. Marcel Knobil, founder of VeryFirstTo, said: ‘This never done before trip is an extraordinary opportunity to visit the stunning settings that prompted many of the world’s most famous paintings.’
