The Great Outdoors - Paintings by Stanley Royle

Stanley Royle, From Yorkshire Hills to Derbyshire Hills (1919) © the estate of Stanley Royle
Saturday 13 December 2014 - Saturday 30 May 2015

Stanley Royle was one of the most popular Sheffield painters of the 20th century. This major retrospective exhibition, the first in almost 30 years, showcases Sheffield’s magnificent collection of his paintings, the largest in the country.

Although born in Stalybridge, Royle quickly became an adopted son of Sheffield. He went on to depict many stunning scenes of the city and surrounding countryside, capturing a landscape threatened by industrialisation. Despite emigrating to Canada to escape the Depression in 1931, Royle returned to the UK after the Second World War and continued to explore and paint.

This exhibition includes works from throughout his career including iconic paintings such as Morning on the Derbyshire Moors, Sheffield from Crookes, and his last ever painting Mevagissey, Cornwall (1960).
