L.S. Lowry's "matchstick men" have become one of the most readily recognised images in 20th-century British art. His vivid and faithful portrayal of the industrial north has led to his adoption as "the people's artist", though art historians and critics have sought for years to analyse his significance and appeal. Over 10,000 works by Lowry are known, ranging from finished oil paintings to hastily drawn sketches. The industrial scene was his most frequent subject but he also painted seascapes and portraits. He was a great humorist and had intense insight into human nature, characterising it without sentiment. His death in 1976 was marked by unprecedented homage by the ordinary people. This study of Lowry's life and work provides a full account of his career. Also included are excerpts from a rare interview given to Edwin Mullins and a discussion by Marina Vaizey of his place in art history.
