Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in England
Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life

Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life
LONDON  •  Tate Britain  •  Ongoing

Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life demonstrates British painter L.S. Lowry’s (1887–1976) connections and debts to French painting of the later 19th century and its determination to make art out of the realities of the emerging modern city. It reveals what Lowry learned from the strange symbolist townscapes of his French born teacher Adolphe Valette and demonstrate important parallels with the painters of modern life Vincent van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat and Maurice Utrillo, drawing upon these artists’s continuous search for ways to depict the unlovely facts of the city’s edges and the landscape made by industrialisation.
