This is a charming pencil drawing by Mr Lowry's own hand.
The original framing (as shown) had remained unopened for some 60+ years.
The note on the back of the frame, clearly typed by a manual typwriter by the daughter of Mr Keane,
Lowry's colleague when he was a rent collector.
We have kept the original framing and note by Kitty Keane.
The drawing has been reframed in a french bound mount with museum UV blocking glass.

Lowry's leading position amongst 20th century British artists has now been well established, not least by the
opening of the Lowry museum.
In 1964 when he was less known, the leading critic Sir Herbert Read wrote the following tribute at the time
of an exhibition at Eccles:
'L.S.Lowry is a unique artist for a number of reasons. Other painters of our time are independent, belonging to
no school or movement, but they are usually traditionalists of some kind. Lowry is original,
and even revolutionary, in his vision. No one else to my knowledge has been so sensitively aware of the
poetry of the English industrial landscape. Usually condemned as ugly - and it is ugly if we look at it from
a conventional point of view - it can nevertheless be transformed if seen objectively, as a subtle harmony of
lines, against which the industrial marionettes move in a danse macabre.'
