Unseen Lowry

  © The Estate of LS Lowry   We have been working with The Lowry in Salford on their fantastic new Unseen Lowry exhibition, which opened on June 22nd and gives a unique insight into a complex man and his working processes. Revealing over a hundred of the artist’s works that have never been seen in public before, the exhibition shows another side to LS Lowry and his work, and provides an interesting counterpoint to the Tate blockbuster which is displaying his iconic images of urban scenes and industrial landscapes. With a wealth of fascinating visual material, with works ranging from landscapes and industrial scenes to portraits and a series of mannequin figures that appear uncomfortably obsessional at times – Unseen Lowry caught the media attention with a double-page spread in the Sunday Telegraph the weekend before opening, as well as features in The Sunday Times, The Guardian and the Daily Mail. BBC Radio 4’s The Today Programme interviewed Michael Simpson, the show’s curator, alongside a curator from The Tate, and BBC News covered the show on their One o’clock and Six o’clock news, offering new perspectives on the life and legacy one of the nation’s most treasured and divisive artists.
