Anders Zorn 1860-1920, Girls from Dalarna Having a Bath, c.1906. © Nationalmuseum, Stockholm
Anders Zorn was renowned for his portrait work, but another genre he had significant success was his painting of nudes. Most of his works were outdoor nudes, so this painting being set indoors is quite unusual for the artist. What is most striking about Zorn's work, as he often used a very limited number of colours in his art, yet managed to create scenes of depth.

Anders Leonard Zorn, 1860-1920, was one of Sweden's foremost artists, with international renown as a painter, sculptor and etcher. After attending the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts, Zorn travelled widely throughout Europe and to the United States, developing his talent and becoming one of the most acclaimed painters of his time.
As his reputation grew, so did the status of his portrait subjects and he went on to paint King Oscar II of Sweden, and three American Presidents, Grover Cleveland, Willaim H. Taft, and Theodore Roosevelt. Zorn was acclaimed, primarily for his skill in being able to bring to life the individual character of his subjects.
Over the course of his life, his art made him extremely wealthy, which allowed him to build up an extensive collection including works from Rembrandt and Hillestrom and on his death (in conjunction with his wife) he donated his entire collection including all his own works to the Swedish State.
We were very pleased to create this series of four pocket squares in collaboration with Götrich 1730. Located in Stockholm, Götrich is Sweden's oldest bespoke tailors spanning six generations. Throughout the years, Götrich has developed its reputation around guaranteed quality and craftsmanship of the highest grade.
This collection of pocket squares features pieces from the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, with works from artists, Gustaf Cederström, Johan Georg Arsenius, Anders Zorn, and Hans Makart.
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 a 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.
