Since its arrival at the Ferens in January 2017, Lorenzetti’s Christ Between Saints Paul and Peter has attracted over 100,000 visitors, appearing in countless news pieces across all genres.
At the heart of Lorenzetti’s masterpiece is an emotional energy between Christ, Saints Paul and Peter, with the three figures represented as if engaged in a ‘silent conversation’. This new exhibition, co-curated by a group of Hull 2017 volunteers, explores how artists across the centuries use dialogue – and indeed its absence – in their work.
Last admission – 30 minutes before closing.
The Ferens has a magnificent collection of paintings and sculptures, including works by European Old Masters, portraiture, marine painting, and modern and contemporary British art. Highlights include masterpieces by Lorenzetti, Frans Hals, Antonio Canaletto, Frederick Leighton, Stanley Spencer, David Hockney, Helen Chadwick and Gillian Wearing. With a regular programme of events, guided tours and changing exhibitions, there’s always something new to explore. You can also enjoy refreshments in our popular cafe, Venue Hull.
