One of our pocket squares from 'artworks collection', which is our cooperation with National Museum in Warsaw.

Limited edition: only 100 pieces.

It is not an eccentric rock star of the 18th century. It is The guitar player by Greuze.

The artist was the typical representative of French rococo. Although in most of his paintings, he was loyal to the movement and portraits characters from the upper class enjoying their spare times, Greuze is now recognized for his honesty and for being less pompous than his pairs. In the case of The guitar player, we see the character disturbed and focused in his musical instrument. Although many think that the musician is playing the guitar, he is actually tuning it; as one of his hands is adjusting the tuning peg. This is why he adopts that weird posture, bringing closer his right ear to the guitar, to listen carefully the tones of the strings.

This work also has very curious characteristics. To begin, the musical instrument is not actually a guitar, because it has a very short fret board. While tuning a guitar is easy, other strings (many times, with paired-up strings), are more complicated.  Probably, this difficulty is the cause of the upset look of the character. Is we look the work closer, we will notice another issue, even more curious: the hand that is adjusting the tuning peg is inside the sleeve of the guitar player’s coat, while the other is free. This detail makes us understand that the character is in a hurry and, thus, the work appears to be spontaneous.
