Cotton canvas re-usable tote bag featuring on one side the iconic artwork Robert Burns, Poet, by Alexander Nasmyth from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection and on the reverse black with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery logo in white.
This half-length portrait of Burns, framed within an oval, has become the most well-known and widely reproduced image of the famous Scottish poet. Nasmyth's painting, commissioned by the publisher William Creech, was to be engraved for a new edition of Burns' poems. He is shown fashionably dressed against a landscape, evoking his rural background in Alloway, Ayrshire.
Alexander Nasmyth (9 September 1758 – 10 April 1840) was a Scottish portrait and landscape painter, a pupil of Allan Ramsay.
