Tate Britain will show Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, the first major exhibition in a public institution since the artist’s death in 1976.
At Tate Britain, Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life results from an invitation extended to the distinguished art historians T J Clark and Anne M Wagner to reappraise Lowry for a new, extended audience. Including works by Lowry from Tate Collection and significant loans, the exhibition will re-assess his contribution as part of a wider art history, showing how he engaged fruitfully with the French tradition, and will argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city.
“LOOKING FOR LOWRY” the film directed by Margy Kinmonth, as seen on ITV’s Perspectives, stars Ian McKellen, Noel Gallager and Dame Paula Rego, and features over 120 works by the artist. Available to buy on DVD.
