Art we’ve helped buy at Ferens Art Gallery

Jacob van Ruisdael's A Wooded Landscape with a Cornfield was purchased to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of The Ferens Art Gallery which specialises in Netherlandish painting but had no major 17th century Dutch landscape before this acquisition.

Study of Stanley Spencer by Richard Carline is a preparatory study for the completed painting 'Gathering on the Terrace', which was acquired by Ferens Art Gallery with the help of a grant from the Art Fund in 1995. Stanley Spencer lodged with the Carline family and in 1925 he married Hilda Carline, Richard's sister.
