‘Girl by the River Leie’ Tote Bag


A beautifully designed tote bag exclusive for Gainsborough’s House, designed to feature the breath-taking masterpiece by Emile Claus c. 1892, “Girl by the River Leie,” this useful large tote bag is great for daily use and works great as a reusable shopping bag as well.

Emile Claus was a Belgian painter born on 27 September 1849, “Karel Van de Woestijne described Claus as ‘one of the most amiable characters in the country, amiable as an Adam who paints; his impressions go no further-or so it seems-than the retina of his eyes: his brain is able to remain untouched by them; his art is the least thought-about art one can imagine. It is the very reason why Claus is such an enviable person and a person who cannot grow old: he is like the youth of the world.'” [Extract from Coming Home – Flemish Art 1880-1930 Catalogue.]

This bag is relevant to the previous Exhibition; Painting Flanders.
