Inspired by the legacy of Courtaulds Ltd, the textile company that made Samuel Courtauld his fortune, The Courtauld is collaborating with museums and galleries across the UK to develop exhibitions, volunteer led projects and school workshops that engage with young people and communities to learn more about the history of Samuel Courtauld’s collection and Courtaulds Ltd in their area.

Monet in Mind
17th May – 4th July 2021
Claude Monet’s (1840-1926) stunning landscape painting, Antibes (1888) forms the centrepiece, and is the inspiration for, an exciting new exhibition opening at the Ferens Art Gallery in May 2021. The key theme underscoring the exhibition is that of mindfulness, with Monet’s landscape as the anchor point. Mindfulness encourages individuals to pause and take a step back from stresses of life, and appreciate the present moment.
Monet’s painting was chosen to be the lead painting for the exhibition following a public vote designed to give young people in Hull an opportunity to engage with cultural decision-making. Monet in Mind is a showcase of the talents of the Future Ferens who worked in collaboration with the gallery’s team of experts to create this fresh and immersive exhibition.
A virtual tour is available on the project website.
Tickets for the exhibition and events programme can be booked from Hull Culture and Leisure.
