An exhibition of LS Lowry’s work inspired by Britain’s industrial north, but also French Impressionists, is perfect for a “histoire des arts” project.
English painter LS Lowry (1887–1976) is forever associated with the song “Matchstick Men and Matchstick Cats and Dogs”. A major exhibition at Tate Britain looks at his gift for depicting the modern, industrial world, in the line of French painters he emulated such as Pissarro and Seurat.
The Salford museum and gallery named in his honour has a good biography of Lowry.
