Laurence Stephen Lowry (1887-1976) was an English artist famous for his scenes featuring matchstick men, often in industrial settings. Lowry grew up in and around Manchester and went on to study at the Manchester School of Art. His style developed over time to the urban landscapes with figures that he is best known for, and later in his life, Lowry painted the coast and seascapes where he holidayed. Lowry exhibited throughout his life, his first solo show was at the Lefevre Gallery and he also exhibited at the Royal Academy. Lowry declined an OBE, CBE, knighthood and Order of the Companions of Honour multiple times during his lifetime. The Lowry Art Gallery was opened after Lowry’s death, holding over 300 of his artworks, and in 2014 he had his first international solo exhibition. The Lowry also holds several hundred of his artworks and today, Lowry’s work is found in countless collections such as the MOMA and Tate.
