National Gallery Canes: Show off Your Love for the Nation's Favourite Paintings

Monday, 18 March 2019

Our collection of National Gallery Walking Sticks has been created for the lover of art. It allows you not only to always carry with you a reminder of your favourite painting, or a fond memory it might stir, but also to contribute a small amount of money to the conservation of some of the nation's favourite paintings. Without further ado, here are Bosschaert, van Gogh, Stubbs, Nattier and Monet.

Ambrosius Bosschaert: A Still Life of Flowers in a Wan-Li Vase

Bosschaert is most known for his luxuriant, harmoniously balanced bouquets that sometimes included symbolic and religious meanings. Our collection of Bosschaert walking sticks includes the details from one of his most popular paintings – Still Life of Flowers in a Wan-Li Vase. You can choose from four different walking stick styles to find exactly the right fit for your needs.

Vincent van Gogh: Sunflowers

Who isn't familiar with van Gogh's Sunflower series? This iconic motif has found its way into popular culture in the 20th century, and remains one of the most recognised post-impressionists works in the world. The series includes a total of twelve canvases, and one of the original "Sunflowers" is part of the collection of National Gallery of London.

Our collection of van Gogh's Sunflowers doesn't include twelve canvases, but it does include four variations of a practical walking stick, decorated with the bright artistic print. You can choose from folding and non-folding canes, a traditional Derby handle and a smaller handle for delicate hands.
