Explore the beautiful range of watercolours currently on show from the Towneley collection including artists JMW Turner, David Cox, William Henry Hunt and Henry Benjamin Roberts.
In the 18th Century watercolours were delicate coloured drawings. The watercolour paint was translucent, allowing the paper to show through giving a different texture and luminosity to the artwork.
Paintings within the exhibition range from landscapes showing a varying range of terrains to depictions of narrative scenes influenced by the rural idyll.
Unfortunately, due to both CoVid-19 and much needed structural building work being undertaken to the hall, this exhibition is currently not accessible in person. We have instead created a Virtual Tour of the Main Art Gallery and our Temporary Exhibition Galleries.
Due to government guidelines Towneley Hall is currently closed until further notice.
Public toilets will be open 10am–4pm Monday to Friday

From all our staff and volunteers, thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.
