The Lowry

During the Second World War Lowry worked as a fire-watcher in Manchester, usually stationed on the roof of a city centre department store. He recalled being ‘first down in the morning to sketch the blitzed buildings before the smoke and grime had cleared.’ X-ray examination has shown that this picture is painted over one of Lowry’s art school studies.
