ARTiSTORY, the National Gallery, London and Anti:dote, Fairmont Singapore present Season of Impressionists, a sunflower-themed afternoon tea inspired by the works of Post-Impressionist Dutch painter, Vincent van Gogh – the first in a four-part series of art inspired afternoon teas.  

Available from March 3-April 2, Season of Impressionists Afternoon Tea includes culinary creations inspired by one of Van Gogh’s works: “Sunflowers”, created in 1888. Executive pastry chef Yong Ming Choong and senior sous Chef Jacky Lai have reimagined this masterpiece as food art with a series of treats in the form of sunflowers, which can be enjoyed with a specially-created cocktail and mocktail. 

“We are so excited about working with Fairmont Singapore and extending the brand reach of the National Gallery, London,” says Judith Mather, brand licensing director, National Gallery, London. “The designs and inspiration for the food and beverage offered are world-class which ties into the quality and provenance of our amazing western European art collection based here in Trafalgar Square, London, England.”  

The menu of dishes and desserts takes reference from painting – from its palette of colors and textures to miniature re-creations of sunflowers. 

During the afternoon tea, guests can look forward to a setting designed to feel as if they were part of Van Gogh’s painting. Diners will be seated among a collection of sunflower-themed ornaments, assorted fresh sunflowers and a framed replica of the masterpiece. There will also be an interactive photo opportunity set up with props.
