St. Bartholomew Deck of Cards



This Limited Edition Deck of Cards features Kehinde Wiley's 2007 masterpiece, St. Bartholomew. Wiley skillfully reimagines Jusepe de Ribera's 1634 painting of the same title, inviting us to traverse the crossroads of tradition and contemporary identity. Through vibrant patterns, the artist breathes new life into the historical narrative, presenting a powerful portrayal of a modern saint. Mirroring its 17th-century counterpart, the composition remains nearly identical, with a background adorned in vintage and ornate details of kittens, yarn, and chicks, playfully patterning around the model's body and extending into the soft pink foreground.

  • 54 playing cards, linen embossed finish.
  • Designed in New York. Made in USA.

Net proceeds from your purchase support the artist in residence program Black Rock Sénégal, founded by Wiley in 2019.
