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
re-assesses his contribution as part of a wider art history, showing how he engaged fruitfully with the French tradition, and argues
for his achievement as Britain's pre-eminent painter of the industrial city.
LSLowry died aged 88 in 1976 just months before a retrospective exhibition of his paintings opened at the Royal Academy.
