Product story

Accompanying the exhibition of British painter L. S. Lowry at Tate Britain, this A5-sized book is an excellent companion to this long overdue retrospective. Bringing together works from the exhibition, it examines Lowry's paintings of twentieth-century working class life and his contribution to art history. Written by two very well-respected and widely published art historians T.J.Clark and Anne Wagner.
