Herbert James Draper, 1863 - 1920, The Lament for Icarus, 1898

  • 100% Silk
  • 98cm x 98cm
  • Designed and Printed in Britain

This classic work is from British painter Herbert James Draper, an artist renowned for his work on Greek mythology. This particular painting depicts the dead Icarus, surrounded by lamenting sea-nymphs. In the classic story, Icarus' father Daedalus created wings made of wax so that he and his son could escape their island prison on Crete. But, overcome by pride, and ignoring all warnings, Icarus flies too close to the sun, melting his wings and plunging to his death.

Drapers use of the male body for the projection of subjective emotion is a feature of late-Victorian painting and sculpture, while the rays of the setting sun on distant cliffs emphasise the transience of time. The warm colours, along with the way Draper applied liquid light effects in his painting style, works brilliantly for a jacket lining.

Usage: Generally, we find tailors prefer to work with two panels of a single painting per jacket in order to line up the image along the back seam. For full details on how best to use our linings, click here: Linings FAQ.
