Vibrant glasses case and cleaning cloth, both featuring a print of Derain’s The Pool of London. Created especially for The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London at Tate Britain, the hard-shell case will keep your glasses safe and the soft cloth will ensure they’re smear free, whether you’re appreciating an artwork or ploughing through paperwork.

Derain’s view of the Thames from London Bridge is one of four works showing the same part of the river. He had been sent to London by his dealer to create a fresh vision of the Thames views, as painted by Claude Monet a few years earlier. Vividly coloured and boldly painted, The Pool of London, 1906 is characteristic of fauvism in creating vivid effects through bold contrasts of colour.

André Derain (1880 – 1954) was a French artist, painter, and sculptor. In 1898, while studying to be an engineer at the Académie Camillo, Derain met Henri Matisse at a painting class taught by Eugène Carrière. Together, Derain and Matisse co-founded Fauvism – a movement characterised by the bold, unnaturally bright colours that the critic Louis Vauxcelles derided as the work of ‘wild beasts’ (les Fauves).
