Following The Courtauld Gallery’s loan of Déjeuner sur l’herbe by Manet in 2017, Paul Cézanne’s iconic Card Players, will now be on display at the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull as part of an ongoing collaboration with The Courtauld Gallery.
This partnership stems from our Courtauld Connects project which aims to share The Courtauld’s collections with audiences across the United Kingdom.
Cézanne’s famous series of paintings of peasant card players have long been considered to be among his most powerful works and this canvas is one of the acknowledged highlights of our collection.
This loan will be accompanied by an extensive display of nineteenth and early twentieth century art drawn from the Ferens permanent collection exploring related themes of peasants and rural life. A number of rarely seen watercolours and prints are included as well as visitor favourites; Walter Langley’s ‘Memories’, 1906, and Joseph Wright Barker’s large canvas ‘Farm Horses and a Foal at a Ford’, 1915
Opening 2 Jun – 9 Sep 2018
