Ferens Art Gallery, Hull
17 May – 4 July 2021
One of the most loved paintings in The Courtauld Gallery’s collection, Antibes by the Impressionist artist Claude Monet, is the centrepiece of a new exhibition at Ferens Art Gallery, Hull.
The exhibition focuses on the importance of mindfulness and reflection in response to the coronavirus pandemic and has been designed to give visitors – both to the gallery and online – the space in which to reflect on the artworks on display and enjoy them in a calming environment.
Artworks from the Ferens’ permanent collection are also on display, including works by Walter Richard Sickert, Philip Wilson Steer, Derwent Lees, Beatrice Bright and Barbara Hepworth. Many of these pieces have never been displayed together before.
Antibes is travelling to Hull for the first time as part of the Courtauld National Partners programme – supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund – which aims to share The Courtauld’s collection with audiences across the UK whilst The Courtauld Gallery is closed for a major transformation project until later this year.
