I fell in love with the Hugo Guinness artwork hung in the newly-renovated 5th Avenue Kate Spade boutique as featured in the current issue of Lonny Magazine. Naturally, I wanted to find out more about the artist.

A quick google search revealed that the home of Hugo Guinness and his beautiful wife, Elliott Puckette, is featured in one of my all-time favorite books, Vogue Living: House, Gardens, People.

"'It's one of my favorite houses anywhere,' the filmmaker Wes Anderson tells me. 'I wanted to film scenes for The Royal Tenenbaums in it, but it is too narrow, so we re-created it a few blocks away. We used elliott's paintings and Hugo's prints and old metal garden furniture with the the paint chipping off, and a washed-out whiteness across the whole place. They both have perfect taste,' Anderson says..." - Daisy Garnett, Vogue Living: Houses Gardens People

Hugo's prints are available for purchase at exclusively at John Derion in New York City.

Hugo is one of my all time favorites! I used to live just a couple blocks from the John Derian shops and I would stop in all the time simply to drool over the Hugo prints. Someday I hope to have a few hanging on my wall!

I ran across this post while I was watching The Darjeeling Limited! A little Wes Anderson irony :)

Thanks so much for the post, Hugo is a great artist to be aware of. I might even put one of his pieces on my Christmas list.
