LS Lowry, Coming from the Mill Pastel, c.1917

The display reveals the influence the two men had on one another, as well as paying tribute to their distinctive individual styles.

Both were working-class artists who chose to portray the world around them in a way that was entirely unpretentious, instead focusing on the experience of the 'common man' and celebrating the beauty and humour in the everyday.
