Custom designed for the Detroit Institute of Arts!

Now you can protect your eyewear with this eyeglass case which also includes a lens cleaning cloth.

Both pay homage to Vincent van Gogh's Self-Portrait, a favorite in the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts. "For want of a better model," Van Gogh chose to paint his own portrait on many occasions. While in Paris between 1886 and 1888, Van Gogh lightened his palette under the influence of the brilliant colors of the impressionists, but he soon reserved the use of such light colors to express particular moods. Van Gogh's stay in Paris was a relatively happy one, and in this painting, created during the summer of 1887, he portrays himself with an almost light-hearted appearance.

The hard eyeglass case is covered with a printed fabric and the easy-open secure case is lined with a black velvet-like material to prevent scratching.

The microfiber eyeglass cleaning cloth has an image of Van Gogh's Self-Portrait on its front.

Perfect for prescription glasses, readers or sunglasses.

Case measures 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches.

Both the eyeglass case and the lens cloth are nice mementos of the painting and your visit to the DIA.
