The Destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum, John Martin, 1822, restored 2011, © Tate, London 2014
This painting shows John Martin’s oil painting of the destruction of the great cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.
The wonderful thing about printed paintings on pocket squares is that they can produce a number of different effects depending on how they are folded and creates a great topic for conversation once pulled out of the breast pocket.
The colors in this pocket square would work with any type of jacket, but it would look outstanding if combined with a green, navy or charcoal one.
