A unique collection of fifteen paintings, displayed together for the first time, by the celebrated Liverpool-born author, Beryl Bainbridge.

Beryl Bainbridge was one of the UK’s most famous novelists and an accomplished painter. The exhibition explores the paintings’ connections to Bainbridge’s best-loved novels, family, lovers and life in Liverpool.

There will be a programme of talks and events to accompany the exhibition.

A new book, ‘Artist, Writer, Friend’ written by her life long friend Psiche Hughes, will be available from the Museum of Liverpool’s shop.

Organised in collaboration with the Estate of Beryl Bainbridge and Psiche Hughes
