Matisse Collioure Open Window

Many of us love to see boats in a harbour out of an open window, but Henri Matisse (1869-1954) was the first to see such a view like this.

In the first decade of the 20th century, Matisse holidayed in the then unknown and unspoilt Catalan fishing village of Collioure.

It inspired him, and many others who followed including André Derain, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and James Dickson Innes.

When his Collioure paintings were first exhibited in 1905/6, critics were shocked, and artists inspired to join the short lived Fauvist ('wild beasts') movement that, influenced by Vincent Van Gogh, typically used broad brush strokes and brash colours.

Today, it makes for a wonderfully evocative scarf beautifully printed on the finest quality Chinese silk near Lake Como on the Ancient Silk Road.

The image frame is a Weston Euphorbia Fluorite. 

Despite the huge amount of research, rights negotiations, image testing on silk, and the licensing fees paid for some of the images the price is the same as for other bespoke scarves, and at a very significant discount on the original retail price.

They are printed in England, and normally delivered in less than 6 weeks, often 4 or 5 weeks. We'll notify you when it's about to be sent.

You save upto £150 on the retail price, and pay only a small premium on the website price of stocked scarves.

As this scarf is being produced exclusively for you, you will appreciate why bespoke orders cannot be cancelled prior to delivery, and returns are only accepted if delivery takes longer than stated, or there is a fault with the printing of the scarf.

The image has been made available by courtesy of the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.
