Hoorn was the original name given to the cape that marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage in the south seas – known today as Cape Horn. In 1616, it was discovered by two Dutch seafarers, Le Maire and Schouten, who were looking for a new route that could link Europe with the Spice Islands.

 

The inspiration for Hoorn Vintage came from our experiences living in these most southern latitudes and the vintage travel art we found throughout Europe. We hope to continue to explore and represent as many places as we can, according to our always present wanderlust.

Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica series

Inspired by the landscapes that lie in the remote latitudes of the far south, this is the first series of Hoorn Vintage. With six different motifs – from the Beagle Channel in Ushuaia to Antarctica’s Paradise Harbour – we hope to visually capture the magic that lies at the end of the world.

 

Artist: Born in the outskirts of Paris, Marine Israel was involved in different art projects from an early age. She made Tierra del Fuego her home in 2012 and works as a guide in the region. In this series, she combined the vintage style of the 1930s posters of Mont Blanc, Chamonix with some modern influences. Each design was originally hand painted on canvas.
