Various Japanese hanging scrolls, c. 16th-18th centuries, Japan. © The Trustees of the British Museum, London
This pocket square is inspired by a number of magnificent hand painted Japanese scrolls in the British Museum’s collection.
The centrepiece is inspired by a hanging scroll painted by Kano Tsunenobu of a pheasant on a pine tree in snow from the late 17th century to early 18th century. The corner elements are inspired by a hanging scroll attributed to Kano Utanosuke of a Japanese wax-wing resting its wings on a branch of peach blossom from the late 16th century – early 17th century.
The border elements are then inspired by a hanging scroll (1795-1818) painted by Chobunsai Eishi of a Chinese beauty, Yang Guifei, playing the flute and seated alone on an elaborate Chinese-style throne, surrounded by flowering trees and peonies.
A subtle piece that adds a level of intrigue to a jacket pocket, the soft tones and rich history provide a guaranteed talking point.
