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.
We started out as a small screenprinter in a Brighton basement. Today we've grown to a factory and design studio in Newhaven. Headed by founder Gyr King, we have a simple ethos to bring inspiring, affordable art to everyone.
Highly delighted in this product and cannot recommend this company enough. Excellent value for money and a first class product. They are the cheapest in the UK and I would say a market leader.
I wanted a print of a particular painting - a Lowry self-portrait. it was available in several different sizes and either unframed or framed. If you chose to order it framed there was a range of frame styles from which to choose . The quality of paper was good, and it had been packed in a fairly large diameter tube so that, although rolled up, it showed no creasing when flattened. The colour was accurate and and rich. It is too soon to say how permanent the colour is. This is often a great disappointment when buying a print of a painting - the colour can start to fade after only a few months if there is any exposure to direct sunlight. It was not cheap and the framing prices were quite expensive. I ordered it unframed and had it framed by my usual frame-maker at a lower price and with a much wider choice of mouldings. In terms of quality the actual print compares well with other prints generally - an exact comparison would be difficult to make as this was the only source that I could find for this specific image.
Ordered a as a birthday present for my wife she was delighted with the print and the quality of the mounting and framing. She opened her picture at my hospital where I am recovering from a heart transplant. So it brought joy to all.
