Today.My husband's birthday.

 He is looking quite good for 77!A full head of hair and only a few grey hairs,apart from his beard.We left home at about 10.00am and were at the Imperial War Museum at Salford Quays by 11.00am.We wanted Togo there because there is an exhibition about WW1 called Lest We Forget.It was featuring paintings by John Singer Sargent ,Nevinson,Paul Nash  and Stanley Spencer.

Afterwards we went to the Lowry to see some Lowry paintings and also a Pre Raphaelite exhibition.Lowry had been a great fan of their work and during his lifetime bought a lot of pictures.

 A typical Lowry.

             The Bower Meadow by Rossetti.

            We walked across this bridge to get between the two venues.

                       The Menin Road by Paul Nash.
                       M.            Gassed byJohn Singer Sargent.This is huge2.3 m by 6.1 m.
                                          A Battery Shelled by Percy Wyndham Lewis.

                I think he has had a great day but I am shattered!!!
