A new exhibition at The Lowry, Salford Quays, is shining a light on artist LS Lowry’s passion for Pre-Raphaelite art work.
In his younger days Lowry was an admirer of this 19th century group of artists and later became a collector of their work.
The exhibition, Lowry & The Pre-Raphaelites, features works of two of Lowry’s favourite artists, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Ford Madox Brown, as well as works by Edward Burne-Jones and Lowry himself.
From well-known classics to pictures rarely displayed in public, this exhibition, curated by Claire Stewart, includes works formerly owned by LS Lowry alongside some of his favourite pictures held in public and private collections.
Here Claire shares her five ‘must see’ artworks on display:
