Wish there was a fun way to mix some art into your morning routine? Look no further than The Unemployed Philosophers Guild‘s Brief History of Art Mug—a unique cup that brews up “a crash course in the world’s greatest art” every time you enjoy a beverage.
Capable of holding 14 ounces of liquid, this mug is relatively standard in size. However, much like a good cup of coffee, it packs a punch. Featuring a colorful collage comprising 24 details, the Brief History of Art Mug covers over 15,000 years of Western art history. While this may seem like an impossible feat, The Unemployed Philosophers Guild has been strategic with their selections.
From Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man and Botticelli's Venus to Jeff Koons’ balloon dog, the subjects found on the mug illustrate particularly pivotal moments in art history—all of which are curated chronologically. This clever arrangement ensures that you can easily trace the evolution of the Western art world while you wait for your coffee to brew.
