Lucas Cranach The Younger 1515-1586, The Stag Hunt of Prince John Frederick
A fine addition to our fine art series, this painting by Lucas Cranach The Younger depicts the stag hunt of Prince John Frederick. There's an exceptional level of detail in the painting with a myriad of things happening in quite an energy laden scene. The colours meanwhile, provide you the opportunity to work with subtle browns and greens or be more adventurous with the electric blue of the sky.
A personal favourite of our team, the image has worked perfectly as a pocket square rich in detail, the stags crossing the river a particularly striking moment.

Lucas Cranach The Younger, 1515-1586. If we say “Lucas Cranach” today, most will think of Lucas' father; Cranach the Elder, Martin Luther's immediate contemporary. But “Lucas Cranach” means much more than a single individual: a dynasty of artists, and a 16th century workshop that caused the Reformation to be viewed as a unique artistic event.
Lucas Cranach the Younger took a vital part in this process. He was born on October 4th, 1515, into a dynamic family: He was the second son of a successful court artist, who had amassed a fortune - including a large number of properties in Wittenberg - with his painter's workshop, but also with an apothecary's license and a print shop.
When looking at paintings from the time, the correct assignment is difficult, especially for the period of time when father and son worked together. Infrared examinations can often help, because they show the preliminary sketch – if it exists – and thus the personal style of the respective artist. Pictures by Cranach the Younger tend to have a rather fine, brittle stroke, while Cranach the Elder favoured a more brisk style.
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our silk pocket squares are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
The art of hand rolling pocket squares is a unique craft and truly makes each piece individual and unique. We feel that the precision and care taken by our skilled artisans gives each scarf its own unique character, finish and feel. To create the finest rolled hems, the edge of the silk or cotton pocket square must be softy turned over with handheld needle and then small stitches are inserted approximately one half to one centimetre apart around the edge, creating a supple yet prominent border. It’s absolutely the best way to finish a pocket square for a variety of reasons but the key ones are for both visual effect and structure. Rolling by hand is the only way to get a really nice clean plump finish on the edge and this gives a really nice depth to the edges. It’s a more expensive process than machine rolling but by using a machine you’re often left with a flat edge and you don’t get the same luxurious feel. On top of this, the rolled edges add a lot more structure to your pocket square.
