Take a masterpiece on the road with our elegant canvas tote bags! Tall enough for a magazine and wide enough to hold your book, sunglasses, wallet, and anything else you wouldn’t leave home without.
With sturdy cotton webbing shoulder straps, a magnetic snap closure, and an open interior pocket, this tote bag is ready for anything. Our vivid art designs are printed on both the front and the back, and are sure to turn heads on your errands, trip to the museum, or day at the beach.
The fine art design features “Nympheas” by master Impressionist Claude Monet. The artist was 73 in 1914 when he began this series of mural-sized canvases depicting his water garden near his home at Giverny.
Although the artist had already produced hundreds of paintings of the garden, this series is among the most passionate, the loose brushstrokes and rich darkness in the water setting it apart from his earlier impressions. In 1922, the Musee De L’Orangerie built an oval room to permanently display the murals, where visitors can be completely surrounded by water lilies.
