LS Lowry Exhibition

Permanent Exhibition

The Lowry houses the largest public collection of paintings and drawings by LS Lowry in the world. There are over 400 works in the collection, 57 of which are oil paintings. Alongside the works of art is an archive containing thousands of items ranging from photographs to press cuttings and exhibition catalogues. Both the collection and archive were formed by Salford Museum & Art Gallery and transferred to The Lowry in 2000. A selection of highlights from the Collection can always be seen on display in the Gallery’s permanent Lowry Favourites exhibition alongside works on loan from important private collections throughout the UK.

Free Talks  – Gallery interpreters lead free tours of the LS Lowry exhibition every day at 12pm and 2pm. They discuss his life and work and highlight new works that have joined the display.Tours last approximately 30 mins.

Once a season there are also free BSL and Audio tours, go here for more information on what those are.
