L. S. Lowry (1887-1976) is best known for painting industrial scenes of North West England in the mid 20th century. His characteristic style has a dreamlike quality, populated by stylised figures referred to as 'matchstick men'. Although Lowry was trained in academic drawing, he chose to develop his own naive style which has brought him widespread recognition. His mysterious, weatherless landscapes express a personal response to the world around him that never fails to bewitch the viewer. Lowry's paintings tell the true tale behind English city life.

Ordered this Framed Print a week before Christmas but was advised it wouldn't arrive until after New Year. Delighted to receive an e-mail on the 21 December to advise delivery would be 24 December. The item was well packed and just what we expected. Would certainly recommend this company.

I was looking for something to fill a wall in my hallway, and as a wandering Mancunian I’ve long known about Lowry and this and the other print I bought really reminded me of where I grew up, so were a ‘must buy’ now I’m older. I’d never bought from King & McGraw before but there really were no concerns. Quick turn around of the order, well packaged and delivered bang on time. The prints themselves are vibrant and the frames well put together, although I would say they are quite modern/boxy rather than more traditional frames, but it’s a nice contrast with the period scene. I’ll definitely be coming back.
Excellent quality and well packaged
