L.S. Lowry, often known simply as Lowry, died in 1976 at the age of 88. Unlike say Rembrandt, by and large he was no portrait painter; he specialised in industrial landscapes of the area in which he lived, the "dark Satanic mills" of Lancashire. Lowry at the Tate was covered here in June

A flyer for Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life
has now been added to The David Webb Virtual Archive & Fan Site
. More information about Lowry can be found on the dedicated Lowry website
