This beautiful 100% silk scarf is an exclusive design featuring a detail of the artwork Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent, part of the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. Produced in pure silk, this beautiful scarf has a translucent ethereal quality, finely finished with hand-rolled edges and printed in the United Kingdom.
This is the portrait of Gertrude Vernon (1864-1932), commissioned by Lady Agnew’s husband, Andrew Noel Agnew, who was a barrister and barony of Lochnaw in Galloway. The popularity of the painting made Sargent become recognised and on demand as a portrait painter and also brought Lady Agnew some reputation as a society beauty.
John Singer Sargent is an American artist born in Italy who also travelled worldwide throughout his life. He studied in Paris where he developed his style, remarkable by his bold use of light in both portrait and landscape paintings.
