L.S LOWRY RA (1887-1976)
Laurence Stephen Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England during the mid-20th century. He developed a distinctive style of painting and is best known for his urban landscapes depicting human figures often referred to as "matchstick men".
A large collection of Lowry's work is on permanent public display in 'The Lowry' on Salford Quays. The 'Going to the Match' painting set a record auction price for a 20th century British work when it was sold at Sotheby's in 1999. Lowry's artwork has exceeded this price since, reaching figures of £5.8 million.
His work is also featured at MOMA, The Tate Gallery and The Christchurch Art Gallery. In 2013, a major retrospective opened at the Tate Britain and in 2014 his first solo exhibition outside of the UK took place in China.
Prices Range from £3,850 to £4,995
