A Silent Conversation: Lorenzetti and the Ferens Collection

FERENS ART GALLERY - CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, Queen Victoria Square, Hull, HU1 3RA

17 Mar - 31 Dec 2018

All ages

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.
