This vintage scarf was designed by Donald Hamilton Fraser for The Genius of Venice exhibition that opened at The Royal Academy of Arts in 1983. This was printed by Beckford silk mill
The central image of the harlequin was taken from a hand painted valentine's card that he had made for his wife. Apparently he made one for her every year.
The ballet and landscape were common themes in Donald’s work, which was largely figurative and influenced by the School of Paris, where he studied from 1953-1954. He taught at the Royal College of Art from 1957-83 and was elected RA in 1985.
This is a large vintage silk ... 100% silk with hand rolled hem. This also has the Fraser signature on. This one is for the collector.
This is vintage, but comes in good condition.
