Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life

This entry was posted on 21st June 2013


Where: Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG When: 26 June – 20 October 2013 Next week sees Tate Britain playing host to one of the country’s most prolific and distinctive painters. The exhibition, Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life, is a comprehensive retrospective of the artist’s studies of industrial and urban landscapes.

His pale colour palette, muddy tones and stylised figures will probably be quite familiar but his pictures also document life in the North of England from the 1920s to the 1950s. His large canvases of street scenes are bustling with people and lots of great details that reveal themselves the more you look. This exhibition is going to be popular, so book to avoid disappointment.
