A partnership with the Royal Collection Trust brings a Rembrandt painting to Hull for the very first time. The Ship Builder and his Wife is one of five exceptional loans agreed for the Ferens between 2017 and 2021, complementing Hull’s maritime heritage and the Gallery’s strength in Dutch 17th century art. Rembrandt’s portrayal of a Dutch couple was painted in 1633, during the height of his success as a portrait painter.

Monday-Wednesday: 10am-5pm
Thursday: 10am-7.30pm
Friday-Saturday:  10am-5pm
