The Lowry houses the largest public collection of paintings and drawings by LS Lowry in the world.
Don't miss a complete re-display of the Collection - with more gallery space than ever before dedicated to the Salford artist, along with new interpretation and new loans from across the UK. Featuring some of his most famous and important works this exhibition shows an artist remarkable for his diversity and fearless innovation.
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 our permanent LS Lowry - The Art & The Artist exhibition alongside works on loan from important private collections throughout the UK.
