A special exhibition programme celebrating landmark events in the history of Warrington Museum and Art Gallery.

From its creation in 1848, Warrington Museum has amassed significant collections, including works by prominent local Victorian artists who acquired a national reputation as regular exhibitors at the Royal Academy.

In the Royal Academy's 250th anniversary year, the oldest museum in the North West celebrates both institutions by exhibiting the work of its most famous local artists.

For the third exhibition in the series, the museum has loaned fantastic works from National Museums Liverpool, including Enrico Coleman’s Oxen Drawing a Black Stone to the Studio of John Warrington Wood, and Sir Luke Fildes’ A Portrait of Fanny Fildes and The Widower.

This exhibition is part of RA250 and supported by the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund.
