Cotton canvas tote bag featuring one of Monet’s iconic paintings of the Houses of Parliament, created especially for The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London, French artists in exile (1870–1904) at Tate Britain.

The Houses of Parliament series of paintings were all painted from roughly the same viewpoint, during different times of day and weather conditions. Whilst they are of the same viewpoint, none of them were finished in one sitting, and Monet continued to refine them even when he returned to Paris. He wrote to his dealer Durand- Ruel: 'I cannot send you a single canvas of London ... It is indispensable to have them all before me, and to tell the truth not one is definitely finished. I develop them all together.'

Oscar-Claude Monet was a founder of French Impressionist painting. The term 'Impressionism' is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant. Monet’s Impressionist work is characterised in terms of colours and shapes rather than scenes and objects, using bright colours in dabs and dashes, and featured the same setting painted many times to capture the changing light and seasons of the natural world.
