Fox & Chave Monet Water Lilies Silk Tie: best price for this iconic pure silk tie inspired by the Impressionist masterpiece from the artist’s garden in Giverny: high quality silk, hand finished
A work of art, this fine silk tie is inspired by one of Claude Monet’s many famous Water Lilies paintings. This dreamlike pattern depicts a detail from the painting.
In 1893 Monet bought a plot of land next to his house in Giverny. He had already planted a colourful flower garden, but now he wanted to create a water garden ‘both for the pleasure of the eye and for the purpose of having subjects to paint’. He enlarged the existing pond, filling it with exotic new hybrid water lilies, and built a humpback bridge at one end, inspired by examples seen in Japanese prints. The water garden became the main obsession of Monet’s later career, and the subject of some 250 paintings.
Here, the water lilies beneath the bridge are the focus, creating a beautiful tie which any artistic man would love to wear, adding a summerly look to everything from a smart suit to linens and blazers.
High quality silk, hand finished.
