Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much-loved British painter L. S. Lowry (1887and#150;1976) made the industrial city the focus of his career. This book, published to accompany a retrospective at Tate Britain, shows how Lowry depicted the public rituals of working-class urban life: football matches and protest marches; evictions and fistfights; workers going to and from the mill. He was also a landscape painter, and he sought to show the effects of the industrial revolution. Written by groundbreaking art historians T. J. Clark and Anne M.
