Paolo Veronese, 1528–1588, Mars and Venus United by Love, 1570s.
In this stunning painting by Veronese, Cupid binds Mars to Venus with a love knot. Visually stunning and incorporating a beautiful colour blend for this scarf, the picture operates as an allegory and celebrates the civilizing and nurturing effects of love. This is among Veronese's greatest works, created at the height of his powers. He is widely considered one of the greatest masters of light and color, and his work had an enduring impact on later artists including Velázquez and Giambattista Tiepolo.

Paolo Caliari, known as Paolo Veronese (1528–1588), was an Italian Renaissance painte that was based in Venice and known for large-format history paintings of religion and mythology. Along with Titian and Tintoretto, Veronese is described as one of the “great trio that dominated Venetian painting of the cinquecento” and the Late Renaissance in the 16th century. Influenced by Titian, Veronese became known as a supreme colorist and developed a naturalist style of painting.
His large paintings of biblical feasts painted for monasteries in Venice and Verona are what he is best known for and he was also widely considered the leading Venetian painter of ceilings. Most of these works are still in situ and his representation in most museums is mainly composed of smaller works such as portraits that do not always show him at his best or most typical. Nonetheless, many of the greatest artists including Rubens, Watteau, Tiepolo, Delacroix and Renoir are counted among his admirers.
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 scarves 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.
Located in New York City, and colloquially known as 'the Met', the museum was founded in 1870 for the purposes of opening a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. It is the largest art museum in the United States and, with over 7 million visitors in 2016, was the second most visited art museum in the world, and the fifth most visited museum of any kind.
The permanent collection contains over two million works which is divided among seventeen curatorial departments. This consists of works of art from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanian, Byzantine, Indian, and Islamic art. It is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, as well as antique weapons and armor from around the world. There are also several notable interiors installed in the galleries, ranging from first-century Rome through to modern American design.
