This collection is comprised of around 3200 original artworks dating from 1927-1955, plus scrapbooks, glass negatives, prints and a small collection of photographs. The collection even includes a set of Low's hands immortalised in wax!
The collection is largely catalogued.
A large proportion of the artworks are part of the Beaverbrook Foundation Collection.
We also hold around 9000 newspaper cuttings of Low's work. These can be found on the BCA catalogue.
