Exclusive 100% silk scarf featuring a detail of Olive Trees by Vincent van Gogh, from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. The bright colours and expressive brushstrokes of this painting translate very well to the medium of silk, making this a very wearable scarf. It is finished with hand rolled edges and printed in the United Kingdom.
This artwork was painted by van Gogh during the asylum at Saint-Remy and is one of a number of paintings done by the artist featuring olive trees, a theme that seems to have fascinated the artist for its crooked forms and changing shades.
Internationally renowned Dutch artist, Vincent van Gogh is the most well-known of all Post-Impressionist painters. His contact with Impressionist artists in Paris in 1886 greatly impacted his work, which reflected his emotions and increasingly disturbed state of mind.
