Celebrate Monet’s birthday with your iPhone case

Today is Claude Monet’s birthday, and we wanted to show our appreciation to him and his contribution to the art world with our National Gallery iPhone cases.

The Thames below Westminster dates back to around 1871, when Monet moved to London during the Franco-Prussian War. Depicting a foggy London day, the Houses of Parliament, the River Thames and the Westminster Bridge can all be seen in this painting.

Thanks to the collaboration with The National Gallery London, Proporta has been able to bring this Monet masterpiece to its highly protective range of iPhone 4S cases, and now with its iPhone 5 cases launched recently.
