L.S. Lowry's 'Broken Window' placed for auction with Christies online

SHARE:

A rare piece of Cleator Moor history, by Stretford born artist L.S. Lowry, has been placed for auction with Christies. In total, there are 19 Lowry lots for sale.

Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England in the mid-20th century. He developed a distinctive style of painting and is best known for his urban landscapes peopled with human figures, often referred to as "matchstick men".

The piece, "Broken Window" was sketched by Lowry in pencil and pastel on blue paper. The opening bid for the piece, which is described as the 'Property of a Gentleman' was cast at £35,000. 

Broken Window was drawn by Lowry after a young resident of Cleator Moor had an accident on his bicycle outside Mitchells shop front. 

Lowry was staying opposite and probably witnessed the accident, or its aftermath, and this became a fitting subject for a drawing.

Broken Window is signed and dated,  L.S. Lowry 1950. It measures 27.3 x 37.5 cm.

Lowry became a regular visitor to Cleator Moor, after his close friend, Geoffrey Bennett (1902-1991) had moved there with his wife, Alice, and son, also Geoffrey, to run its National Westminster Bank branch.

Lowry sketched and drew with Geoffrey Bennett, a keen amateur artist, and they enjoyed making caricatures to amuse the younger Geoffrey. In fact, Lowry used some of young Geoffrey's pastels to produce a series of vivid drawings of shops and landmarks in the town.
