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.
Needs to be seen slowly to watch how the addition of splashes of red and turquoise appear. Muted colour of the horizon darkens into deep grey/blues. Calm but you can feel the activity of the figures some pushing against the brisk sea breeze. Very British weather.
This print was to join two Lowry Prints purchased last Xmas. It provided a contrasting style but the frame and mountings matched identically. The workmanship of the print and it's frame was outstanding. I felt it was good value for money
