LS Lowry is one of Britain's most popular artists - and yet the very familiarity of his work has stopped us looking as closely as we should at this extraordinary artist. He was a painter not only of the mills al the industrial north-west but also perhaps the one of the great painters of the human condition himself - the TS Eliot of modern British Art and, perhaps we could even claim him as our very own van Gogh! Come along and make up your own mind.
In this entertaining and skilfully presented book Shelley Rohde presents a sequence of often amusing and always revealing anecdotes from the life of the artist. Lowry's personality and wit are evident in his art, particularly his portrayals of people, but they are captured in this book through many quotations. Using unexpected details from his work, as well as many reproductions of his full paintings, the book presents episodes arranged around each of the letters of the alphabet.
It is "a simple introduction to the art of a far from simple man."
