About Artist:

Laurence Stephen Lowry RBA RA (1 November 1887 – 23 February 1976) was an English artist. Many of his drawings and paintings depict Pendlebury, Lancashire, where he lived and worked for more than 40 years, and also Salford and its surrounding areas.

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".  He painted mysterious unpopulated landscapes, brooding portraits and the unpublished "marionette" works, which were only found after his death. 

This is one of Lowry's most sought after signed, limited edition prints.  The original painting Going to the Match by L.S. Lowry was bought by the Professional Footballers Association almost 9 years ago for approx. £2,000,000.  Painted in 1928, it is now on display in The Lowry Centre in Manchester, England, and has been valued at many times its purchase value.

 

One of the many football subjects painted by Lowry, who was always keenly interested in sport: football and cricket in particular.  Many of these pictures have either direct or imaginary links with Burnden Park, Bolton, former home of Bolton Wanderers football club, a ground only a few miles from Pendlebury in Lancashire and often visited by Lowry. as a young man. However, as with so many of his Industrial Landscapes, his football pictures are usually a "composite" of the actual and the imaginary, incorporating a variety of elements from the stock mythos of Lowry's imagery.
