LS Lowry - Salford's Royal Academician

Coming to The Lowry Collection | Sat 8 December – Sun 3 March 2019


To celebrate the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary, The Lowry is exhibiting six paintings by LS Lowry from the RA Collection. Lowry turned down every state honour he was offered, including a Knighthood, but he took pride in his election to the Academy and regarded it as an important landmark in his career.
