Pierre Mornet’s Illustrations Evoke The Belle Epoche

Pierre Mornet Illustrations Belle Epoche

Pierre Mornet’s illustrations are predominantly of beautiful and haunting women in settings that evoke the Belle Epoche. They stare out at you, haunting, languid, caught in a emotional inertia, not knowing where to go, they seem lost, meandering aimlessly through beautifully patterned spaces rich in colour and form. Perhaps they’re caught in a painting of the artists making. Stuck in time.

This is work that has an intensity which is less to do with the image and more to do with the artist. You get the feeling from Mornet’s work that he yearns for a time past, a more innocent generation before the onslaught of industrial warfare changed the face of the modern world.
