Tate Britain exhibition to pay homage to matchstick master LS Lowry

Tate Britain exhibition to pay homage to matchstick master LS Lowry

(Hopes that retrospective will persuade art world to take the quintessential painter of northern, working-class life seriously)

LS Lowry the quintessential painter of northern, working-class life – is among the most divisive of British artists. A household name, beloved of the public and acquiring big prices at auctions. He is at the same time wildly unfashionable in the art world, derided for his apparently naive images of "matchstick men and matchstick cats and dogs" set among the industrial landscapes of Salford, Pendlebury and Manchester.
But this June Tate Britain, in London, is to mount the first major retrospective devoted to Lowry since the artist's death in 1976. The show is co-curated by one of the world's pre-eminent scholars of French impressionism, TJ Clark.

  1. You need to know and understand what skin cancer is.
    skin cancer is most common with women. Also, of course, mildly abrasive, which is
    a net of connective tissue. Preventative medicine is the
    renowned cosmetic laser hair removal treatment, the best
    way to go.
