Artists spanning various different centuries, subjects and art forms are on display at the gallery.

Watch exhibitions assistant Stephanie Jones talk us through the exhibition below –
The exhibition, inspired by Hans Holbein the Younger’s portrait of Sir Thomas More which has been loaned to the gallery from the Royal Collection, looks at how different artists prepare and work towards their works, with some using pieces from other artists as inspiration.

The exhibition is on display in Gallery 3 and includes the newly acquired Ian McKeever piece, Portrait of a Woman.

The portrait of Sir Thomas More, c.1526-7, by Hans Holbein the Younger will be displayed at the Hull art gallery until Sunday 23 June.

It follows masterpieces by Rembrandt and Sir Anthony van Dyck that have been loaned to the gallery as part of a partnership between Ferens and the Royal Collection.

 

The Graffiti Jam has and attracted more than 100 artists from across the country.
