The Deck of the Barque Endymion in a Heavy Sea by John Everett Silk Pocket Square
This silk pocket square is printed with a portrayal by John Everett of the deck of the barque, Endymion, aft from the forecastle, in a heavy sea. The effect of the pitching ship is dramatically emphasized by the sharp angle of the mast. It is exaggerated by the large wave looming in the background behind the ship, on an eye level with the viewer. The rich navy sea is shown pouring over the deck which has become partly submerged on the right. The lower portion of the sail is ripped as a result of the weather conditions. The artist has concentrated on detailing on the deck such as the capstan, chains, bollards, and bell ropes.
Design shown is of a painting by John Everett 1876-1949, 'The Deck of the Barque 'Endymion' in a Heavy Sea', c.1900

One of a beautiful three-piece collection from famous English artist John Everett, in partnership with Royal Museums Greenwich and Rampley & Co.
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.
