He may be famous for his extravagant style and penchant for donning a dress but Turner Prize winning artist Grayson Perry has turned his hand to bag design as part of a celebration of the English painter William Hogarth at the Foundling Museum.
Bringing together three contemporary artists’ work, the exhibition ‘Progress’ celebrates Hogarth’s most famous tale, ‘A Rake’s Progress’. Perry’s own work, ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’, a highly elaborate and fantastically embroidered set of six tapestries, stars alongside pieces by David Hockney, Jessie Brennan and Yinka Shonibare.
Reverse view of the Grayson Perry Tote Bag, £13.95, available exclusively at the Foundling Museum from 6th June.
Take a piece of the art home with you with Grayson Perry’s exclusive tote bag available at the Foundling Museum from 6th June. We’ll be wearing ours with our best Perry style printed dress and just a little bit of arty aplomb.
