Beautiful silk evening scarf with a bold design of William Scott’s ‘Still Life in to Nude’ oil painting. Can also be used as a wall hanging to liven up a living space. Designed exclusively for the Tate.
While serving in the army from 1942 to 1946 William Scott made only a few watercolours of soldiers and the local landscape. He returned to painting in earnest in 1946, concentrating on still-lifes of pots and saucepans, eggs, fishes and bottles on a bare kitchen table. He chose these objects simply because they provided contrasting shapes that he could arrange against simple backgrounds, often to elegant effect. By 1951 the forms had begun to take on a life of their own, sometimes as metaphors of erotic encounters between male and female. This phase of Scott's work came to an end partly as a result of a visit in 1953 to the USA, where he met Pollock, Rothko and Kline. He felt that he belonged to the European tradition of Chardin, Cézanne and Bonnard, and this led to a gradual return to a more representational style. Gradually, however, he moved again towards abstraction.
Made in France from 100% silk, packaged in a cardboard sleeve in a complementary colour. Dry Clean.
