Jeff Koons, an American artist known for using banal pieces in his work, partners with Louis Vuitton, a luxury brand of handbags and purses, to reproduce famous paintings done by notable artists on to bags and other accessories. Louis Vuitton has named it the Masters collection. All of the paintings for the Louis Vuitton handbags are based on Koons’ project, called the Gazing Ball paintings, where the artist attempted to recreate the works of long-gone painters.

Koons recreated Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses, Titian’s Mars, Venus, and Cupid, and Rubens’ The Tiger Hunt. Any bag with a painting on it has the name of the original artist adorned in gold lettering, including Koons’ signature flower symbol.
