Lowry extended until February 16

We are very pleased to announce that we have extended our LS Lowry exhibition for another month!

The Manchester artist’s 1941 work, Houses Near A Mill, has attracted a steady stream of visitors ever since it went on show at the Museum and Art Gallery.
Bought in 1946, the oil painting depicts a typical scene in mid-20th Century Manchester, complete with billowing chimneys and Lowry’s trademark matchstick people.It was brought out of storage as part of Derby Museums policy of rotating its collection in the wake of two major national exhibitions of Lowry’s work last year.
Its run was due to come to an end this Sunday but such has been the demand to see it that it will be kept in place until February 16.
Visitors to the gallery have left a series of comments praising the painting, including one person who described it as “beautiful in its simplicity” and another who said “the picture makes me think of Derby. It could almost be a scene from across the road from the Museum.”

The Museum and Art Gallery is open from 10am-5pm Tuesday-Sunday. For more information please click here
