This study of men and women walking toward the gates of their factory is instantly recognisable as the work of LS Lowry. The picture bears all the hallmarks of Lowry’s charming and unique painting style and was painted in 1959. The print is presented in a black hand-stained solid ash wood frame that gives this classic image a suitably contemporary feel and perfectly complements the artist’s chosen colour scheme. Laurence Stephen Lowry was born in Stretford, Lancashire, in 1887. He began to draw at the age of 8 and at 15 began attending private painting classes. On leaving school in 1904, Lowry began work in Manchester as a clerk with a firm of chartered accountants. He studied painting and drawing in the evenings at the Municipal College of Art (1905-15) and at Salford School of Art (1915-25). Despite his unusually long period as an art student, Lowry considered himself to be a self-taught artist. Lowry is best known for his paintings of industrial landscapes of the north of England.
