Product Detail

For this summer’s Karen Walker x Auckland Art Gallery collection, we present Walter Bayes’ oil painting ‘Lady with Sunshade’ as a silk scarf. Set at the seaside, the elegant woman peering out from beneath the parasol is most likely Kitty Telfer, the artist’s wife, who appears in many of his paintings. Bayes had a reputation for being an intellectual painter and the thin layers of paint and simplicity of ‘Lady with Sunshade’ belie the painting’s careful construction, now rendered here on lustrous silk twill.

This scarf’s square silhouette, cut in lustrous 100% silk twill, allows for relaxed and chic styling; tied around the neck, knotted to a tote, draped over the shoulder, or worn in the hair.
