Emmanuel Levy (1900-1986) studied both in Paris and at the Manchester School of Art. It was at the MSA that he met L. S. Lowry, being tutored under Adolphe Valette whom he later succeeded as art master at Manchester University department of architecture.

He Lectured at Manchester and Stockport College of Art during the 1950’s and 1960’s. He also worked for a while as an art critic at the Manchester Evening News.

Emmanuel Levy is a much under rated artist in the Northern School – though his first exhibition was at Manchester City Gallery in 1924 – his reputation has prospered nationally. There are two of his works hanging at the National Portrait Gallery. And a portrait of Lowry hangs at the Salford art gallery.
