Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life

Opens: 26/06/2013 Closes: 20/10/2013 Tate Britain, London
The popular LS Lowry's first major retrospective since his death in 1976 presents many of the scenes of...
working class life he is best known for: chimneys puff smoke while his small, matchstick people go about their business in the industrial Northern cities of the past. Input from art historians TJ Clark and Anne M Wagner promise to show Lowry's work in a new light. Focusing on the best of Lowry’s urban scenes and industrial landscapes including Tate’s Coming Out of School 1927 and The Pond 1950 alongside significant loans, this timely and carefully selected exhibition aims to re-assess Lowry’s contribution to art history and to argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city.
