L.S. LOWRY AND THEODORE MAJOR

23rd January - 28th February 2015

An important exhibition of works by Theodore Major and L.S. Lowry entitled L.S. LOWRY AND THEODORE MAJOR: TWO LANCASHIRE PAINTERS is being held at Atkinson Art Gallery in Southport between 17th January and 29th March 2015. To mark this important event we are holding a separate L.S Lowry and Theodore Major exhibition within our current Winter Exhibition at our gallery in Hale. Nineteen works by Lowry and Major will be available to view during the exhibition and we hope to add new works during the course of the exhibition.

The Atkinson exhibition is the third exhibition of Theodore Major's work in a public gallery in recent years. The previous exhibitions at Salford Art Gallery in 2003 and Gallery Oldham in 2008 were both huge successes and featured many of his brooding Wigan landscapes.. Lowry and Major have not exhibited together publically since the 1950s so this exhibition will be a fantastic showcase for the two greatest northern school artists.

Lowry's place as the founder of the Northern School of art is undisputed but Theodore Major is also one of the most important northern artists of his generation. He lived to paint and shunned fame and fortune. If he had not rejected the commercial gallery system he had the potential to be as big as Lowry. Over 5000 people attended the Theodore Major retrospective we held in our Hale gallery in 2007. Our biggest attendance ever and a sign of the respect in which he is held by collectors from all over the country.
