Room nine

Going local

Merseyside people and places

Everything on display in this room has a connection to Liverpool or Merseyside. Included are local characters and views together with work by artists who were born, lived or trained locally. There are also objects with a connection to the history of the Walker Art Gallery. The artworks come from different centuries. Most are from the Walker's collection but some are on loan to the gallery.

Grand gallery with paintings hanging on walls

The displays in this room will change periodically to reveal the breadth and variety of this aspect of our collections and in particular we will be highlighting our wide-ranging holdings of prints, drawings, watercolours and photographs.

If you intend to visit the Walker Art Gallery to see a particular artwork, please telephone 0151 478 4199 beforehand to check the artwork is on display.
