Art For Sunderland

This exhibition looks at how the paintings collection at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens came to be here.

Highlighting influential figures including Thomas Dixon, a Sunderland born cork-cutter who persuaded Dante Gabriel Rossetti to donate two drawings for the opening of the art Gallery; John Dickenson, who gave the largest single bequest of paintings in 1908; through to L.S. Lowry, who was a frequent visitor to Sunderland in the 1960s and 1970s.
