Still Life by Jan van Kessel silk scarf
Exclusive 100% silk scarf featuring reproduction and collage of floral elements from Jan van Kessel's Still Life of Flowers and Grapes encircling a Monstrance in a Niche, from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection. This long scarf is finished with hand rolled edges and made in the United Kingdom.
The beautiful design is inspired by the details of the floral bouquets, part of the intricate work by Jan van Kessel. The original artwork shows a cornucopia of grapes, maize, and flowers surrounding a stone niche enclosing a monstrance, representing the act of the Eucharist in Catholic worship.
Jan van Kessel was one of the finest Flemish still-life painters of the seventeenth century, who trained with Jan Brueghel the Younger. He soon became a successful painter, focusing on small scale still life pictures.
