From Battisti Napoli's great works series, here is a masterpiece that is recognized by all. Made in Como with gorgeous Italian silk, this classic square is a great piece to own and enjoy as a pocket square or neckerchief.

The Supper at Emmaus is a painting by the Italian Baroque master Caravaggio, executed in 1601, and now in London. It depicts the Gospel story of the resurrected Jesus's appearance in Emmaus, particularly at the moment when the previously incognito Jesus reveals his identity to his disciples. Caravaggio's style of painting is easily recognizable for its realism, great attention to detail, and intense chiaroscuro (dramatic contrast of bright light and dark shadows).

Here is an excellent talk on Caravaggio featuring this famous work

We subscribe to the sprezzatura way of wearing a pocket square: put it in almost any which way, or if there are certain colors from the square you wish to show you can easily manipulate the square to do just that. But bear in mind you will inevitably pull it out several times to show others the beauty and charm of these great iconic works!
