L S Lowry Artist

Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England in the mid-20th century. He developed a distinctive style of painting and is best known for his urban landscapes peopled with human figures often referred to as matchstick men.

L.S. Lowry, as Britain's pre-eminent painter of the industrial city, was inspired by the Symbolist townscapes of Camille Pissarro and Maurice Utrillo. Watch our tour of show to whet your appetite with Art Historian Rosie Rockel.
