From posters to paintings and cartoons to ceramics, see over 20 prestigious football themed artworks.
Depictions of world famous football stadiums and scenes of amateurs having a kickabout in the park are among the images on display. Going to the Match, one of Lowry’s best-loved works, portraying Bolton Wanderers fans on their way to a game is also among the highlights.
This prestigious oil painting is being shown alongside artworks by Glen Baxter, Willie Rodger and Peter Blake (perhaps still best-known today for his iconic cover design for Beatles’ album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.)
The works all range from early 20th century pieces, such as a programme and souvenir from the England Cup Final in 1906, through to a series of contemporary posters specially commissioned for the PFA’s centenary year.
