Item description for L S Lowry (H Books) (H Books) by Shelley Rohde...
In the thirty years since L. S. Lowry's death several items have come into the public domain - including collections of private letters, now housed in the archives of "The Lowry", the millennium arts centre on the banks of the Irwell, which were made available to the author. Extracts from these will be included in her new biography to give added insight to the man. Illustrations, apart from the obvious inclusion of a selection of paintings and drawings (many of which have come to light since his death), will include facsimile reproductions of major exhibition catalogues. New in this biography: In view of the fact that in 1951 two psychiatrists offered him sight of a medical paper they had written on his industrial landscapes for the Journal of Mental Science, some of his so-called 'hidden' works will be shown to an eminent psychiatrist for a modern view.
