4. Van Gogh Tee

Available in men’s and women’s cuts, this t-shirt gives you a little chuckle but also makes you wonder. What’s about to get weird? Is Van Gogh referring to his ear incident, or all the crazy art that would follow the post-impressionist period? Either way, he was definitely right. It did get weird.

8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Artists 

They’re the world’s most fearsome painting team… Okay, so maybe these artists didn’t work together from the sewers of Florence to combat petty crime lords and alien invaders, but it’s safe to say there wouldn’t have been a Renaissance at all without their combined effort. Then where would we all be? Possibly living in sewers, too. This shirt is a perfect gift for anyone you know who wears t-shirts.

Check it out here.

 

9.  Dutch Master Dress

Dress like an old master and add some movement to this still life by Jan Davidsz. de Heem. This stunning silk dress, straight from the Rijksmuseum, is sure to make the wearer feel like a masterpiece.

10.  Durer Parody necktie

A great tie for anyone who loves Durer’s bleak Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but also enjoys a laugh here and there. Amplifying the horror of the End Times, designer Michael Phipps has given the horsemen musical instruments not found in the original engraving (namely, bagpipes and an accordion) to herald the final reckoning of mankind. If this is what the end of humanity sounds like, be very, very afraid.

Find it here.

 

11.  Art History Enamel Pins

Every outfit can do with a little flair. Check out this timeless pair of quality enamel pins featuring Salvador Dali and a Melting Clock.
