English ships and the Spanish Armada, August 1588.

  • 100% Silk
  • Hand Rolled
  • Designed and Printed in Britain
  • 42cm x 42cm

This stunningly dramatic painting may have been a design for a tapestry and is dateable to the years immediately following the event. The composition appears less like a painting than as a formal design but no other contemporary image of the Armada conveys a comparable sense of the drama and colour of the confrontation between the two fleets.

The Spanish galleass may be meant to represent the principal Spanish flagship, Medina Sidonia's 'San Martin', 48 guns, although by showing her as a galleass, when she was, in fact, a galleon, the artist has used poetic licence to emphasize her Spanish origin. To her right is a stern view of what is clearly intended as the 'Ark Royal', 55 guns, the flagship of the English Lord Admiral, Lord Howard of Effingham, flying the Elizabethan Royal Standard. On the left, bow on, is another English ship, perhaps Drake's vice-admiral's flagship, 'Revenge', 43 guns, although this is speculative.

Testimonials


Daniel Öhrstedt - Datinventory

"I was eyeing the Rampley pocket squares for quite a while and was thinking that the idea of turning classic art into pocket squares was quite brilliant and interesting.

When I finally had the chance to see the products in person I was blown away by the rich details in the prints. What you don't realise from the pictures is that the print is actually incredibly detailed even on the back of the square. This results in making it much easier to…" click to read full review.

Erik Mannby - Editor-in-chief Plaza Uomo

"My line of work gives me a pretty unique chance of studying finely crafted clothing and accessories and if pressed, I can roll a decent hand rolled edge myself. Rampley & Co’s products are as good as it gets where handwork is considered. The pocket squares I own so far are on the same level, or better than, pocket squares that usually retail for several times the price that Rampley & Co charge. The silk is finely woven and neither too thick to become bulky in ones pocket, nor is it..." click to read full review.
