Blue Boy Deck of Cards by Kehinde Wiley
- $27.00 for Members
This deck of cards features A Portrait of a Young Gentleman, (2021) by Kehinde Wiley, which was created as a contemporary response to Thomas Gainsborough's iconic Blue Boy portrait (1770). This set of playing cards is inspired by the manner in which Wiley's painting reimagines Gainsborough's young, white subject as a Black, Senegalese surfer and replaces the original moody, wooded landscape with a vibrant, floral backdrop.
Net proceeds from your purchase support the artist in residence program Black Rock Sénégal, founded by Wiley in 2019.
