This pocket square shows a large and dramatic evocation of the Cutty Sark bow, focusing on a carved figurehead. In this beautiful print of this highly stylised painting, the ship is shown moving through the waves at sunset. The sails of the ship loom above the viewer's point of vision. The crests of the waves are reduced to a series of white blocks on the horizon, reminiscent of Japanese prints. The sun glows orange on the horizon, and the sails are outlined as blocks of colour.
Design shown is of a painting by John Everett 1876-1949, Bow view of 'Cutty Sark' c.1930

One of a beautiful three-piece collection from famous English artist John Everett, in partnership with Royal Museums Greenwich and Rampley & Co.
The Cutty Sark was one of the most famous merchants sailing ships of the 19th century. Everett saw her several times while she was at sea under this name. By 1922 she had been rescued by Captain Downman and brought to England, where Everett saw her again. She remained as a training ship until she was put into dry dock at Greenwich in 1954 as the last surviving British merchant sailing ship.
John Everett was an English painter known as Herbert by his family. He was born in Dorchester, Dorset, before changing his name to John in 1901. After studying briefly at the Académie Julian in Paris, Everett's life took an unconventional path when he embarked on the first of his 16 sea voyages. He created many remarkable and timeless paintings in the early 1920s. Although 1938 marked his last voyage and World War II put an end to his sea travels, he was to paint and make prints from memory and notes from that point.
