Mrs Lowry and Son

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The story of the relationship between British painter L.S. Lowry, who was famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England in the mid-20th century and his mother, Elizabeth.
Lowry 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 artist lived all of his life with his overbearing mother, a bed-ridden and depressed presence in her bachelor son’s life and a deterring voice as he pursued his artistic ambition. Spending his days as a rent collector, Lowry took art classes by night, painting into the early hours of the morning when his mother fell asleep, to hone his craft as he aspired to have his work appreciated among the elites of London.
