Item Description

Luxe and luscious, the limited edition Hagerty Art Scarves have been a sell-out sensation since their debut at exclusive women’s department store, Gwynn’s, in November, 2012.  The scarves are based on  Richard Hagerty’s original paintings and are printed on high-quality, luxurious silk. Each scarf measures a generous 72 inches by 18 inches. 100% silk charmeuse.

Richard Hagerty, a self-taught artist, paints from a vast reservoir of dreams, his store of personal imagery suffused with the infinite memories, symbols, and archetypes of the collective unconscious.  Attenuated since childhood to the power of dream and myth, the notion of the shadow self, and the baroque imagery and iconography of the Catholic religion—with its overlay of threat and terror— in which he was raised, Hagerty states that “painting, for me, is a language, a way to express the conflicts and complications of the psyche, both my own and those of the culture at large.”
