This pure habotai silk scarf featuring Philip de László’s Mrs George Sandys has been designed exclusively for Gainsborough’s House to accompany the stunning exhibition Philip de László: Master of Elegance at Gainsborough's House, in The Timothy and Mary Clode Gallery from 23rd March to 23rd April 2024.

The portrait of Mrs George Sandys was influenced by Van Dyck’s portrait of Lucy Hay, Countess of Carlisle. De László saw that portrait in 1911, while staying at Wentworth Woodhouse painting Countess Fitzwilliam and her family. This demonstrates how the artist’s extraordinary visual memory influenced his compositions throughout his career. Such works exemplify de László’s artistic lineage as a successor in the Grand Manner style to portraitists such as Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Reynolds and Lawrence.
