Channel Crossings is a new display featuring English and French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism from Manchester Art Gallery's collection. This display looks at the allure and excitement of French art for a generation of English and Scottish painters emerging from the claustrophobia of late Victorian painting. It shows works by major French artists including Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley and Auguste Renoir alongside British artists such as George Clausen, John Singer Sargent and Philip Wilson Steer.

Channel Crossings replaces a display of work by Lowry and Valette, which will be closed to the public from 27 November 2012. Eight of the works by Lowry, including works newly restored, will be displayed on the first floor and ground floor of the art gallery from 6 December 2012. Adolphe Valette’s Albert Square will also be displayed on the ground floor.

These new displays are part of an ongoing programme intended to make more of the gallery's collection available to the public through more frequent changes and rotation of works.
