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.
