The Lowry

Lowry made his initial sketch of St Simon's Church in 1927 at his father's suggestion. Generally, Robert Lowry expressed little interest in his son's work but thought that this building, due for demolition, might appeal to him. When Lowry returned to the site, a month after making his sketch, the church was gone. The painting was completed in the following year.
