Product Detail

Laura Knight’s 1918 painting ‘The Bathing Pool’ is rendered on lustrous silk twill for this summer’s Karen Walker x Auckland Art Gallery collection titled Escapism. ‘The Bathing Pool’ was painted at a time when sketching on the English coast was prohibited for reasons of national security. It depicts a sunny afternoon seaside with friends Knight recalls as “lovely” and “full of mischief”. Knight described herself as a ‘modern realist’ and preferred to paint the lives of ordinary working people. She was also renowned for her female nudes and often painted women lounging in the sun, or on the move.

This scarf’s square silhouette, cut generously in a fluid 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.
