Free, meet in the atrium

The rapidly developing, interconnected cityscapes of Manchester and Salford were painted by both Lowry and Valette in their distinctive styles during the early to mid twentieth century.

Lowry attended life-drawing classes taught by Valette, who became a strong influence on his work. Both artists painted scenes of industry in the North West of England.

Join our volunteer guide Lindsay for a tour of Lowry and Valette’s work.

This tour will be filmed by Sky Arts for the programme Fake! The Great Masterpiece Challenge. Click here for more information.
