Circle Of L.S. Lowry

A Northern Town

Oil On Canvas

19.3/8 X 21 in. (49.3 X 53.3 cm.)

Condition: In good condition, what appears to be a surface scratch is possibly part of the composition though one can not be sure.  There are possibly frame abrasions to the lower edge in a limed wood frame with white inner and outer sections.  Good impasto.

A deeply atmospheric composition showing the grey skies of industry from the middle of the 20th Century, England.  
It has inscribed 'Major' on the reverse although it does not seem to fit in with Theodore Major's style.
