Hugo Grygkar designed the very first Hermes carre. This talented artist was highly instrumental along with Robert Dumas in creating the Hermes carre as we know it today.  You can read more about him here.

As the name suggests, this carre was inspired by horse paintings of the seventeenth century Flemish painter Adam Frans van der Meulen.

Van der Meulen captured many battle scenes on canvas and was influential in developing military painting in France, where he lived and his career flourished.

He was especially famous for his accurate depictions of horses in various battle scenes.  Van der Meulen developed several studies of horses, that he and his apprentices used as references and models for numerous paintings.

In his d’Apres van der Meulen carre, Hugo Grygkar skilfully captures twenty-nine horses in various poses and activities…his very own “study” I suppose.

Not only can you frame Grygkar’s study, but even better, you can take it wherever you go, you can wear and enjoy it all year long.
