Flower Still Life by Jan van Huysum silk scarf
Exclusive design, 100% silk scarf is inspired on a detail from Flower Still Life with Bird's Nest by Dutch Jan van Huysum, part of the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. This silk scarf has hand-rolled edges and is printed in the United Kingdom.
This artwork depicts and extraordinary bouquet made up of a good variety of flowers from different seasons such as tulips and roses, and is also inhabited by butterflies and insects. The bouquet is presented in a plinth with a bird’s nest close to it. This is a large painting on copper, medium that the artist occasionally used.
Born in Amsterdam, Jan van Huysum renowned by his detailed flower still-life artworks received a good number of commissions for painting flower-pieces in the eighteenth century.
