Laurence Stephen Lowry did not like to think of himself as an amateur artist. People would occassionally accuse him of being
self-taught and untutored. Lowry commented, "Started at fifteen years old. Don't know why".
My aunt said "You are no good for anything else, so you might as well go to Art School."
LSLowry began evening classes in antique art and free handart drawing during 1905.
Later studying in both the Manchester Academy of Fine Art and The Salford Royal Technical College at Peel Park.
School records show that Lowry attended art classes during the 1920's.
Lowry had learnt from teachers, people such as the Frenchman Adolphe Valette.
This French Impressionist artist had made a big impact on the art world.
Lowry saw from exhibitions in Manchester how the current trends in modern art were changing,
and had great affection for Pre-Raphaelite art, by artists such as Rossetti and Ford Madox Brown.
A naive Sunday artist LS Lowry certainly was not. Lowry strove for a distinctive way of painting and drawing,
and for a subject matter Lowry could make unique.
Eventually Lowry's choice was the view from the Technical College window. Industrial scenes of Salford
and Manchester, rather than that of a model posing.

Throughout the early years L.S.Lowry lived in Victoria Park, the suburbs of Manchester. Due to lack of money
Lowry's family moved to Station Road, Pendlebury.
There, the tree lined streets changed to factory chimneys. Lowry recalled "At first I detested it, and then,
after years, became pretty interested in it, eventually obsessed by it".
Lowry saw the subjects for his paintings all around him. In Lowry's later life, L.S.L. recalled a particular event.
"One day after missing a train from Pendlebury (a local town) I had ignored for seven years, and on leaving
the station, saw the Acme Spinning Company's mill.
The huge black framework of rows of yellow lit windows standing up against the sad, damp charged afternoon sky.
The mill was turning out. "Gazing at this scene, which I'd looked at many times without seeing, with rapture."

Salford Museum & Art Gallery began collecting the artist's work in 1936 and gradually built up the
collection which is now at the heart of the award-winning building bearing the artist's name.
Celebrating his art and transforming the cityscape again.
A small quantity of work by the artist ls lowry was published as signed limited edition prints. Some of the most well known being, 'Going to the match',
Man lying on a wall, Huddersfield, Deal, ferry boats, three cats Alstow, Berwick-on-Tweed, peel park, The two brothers, View of a town, Street scene.
