Lowry exhibition in Kendal

Filed under Uncategorized

If you thought Lowry’s works could only be seen in Salford, or that this renowned artist only painted pictures of crowds of people in urban settings, head to Kendal and feast on a brand new exhibition, ‘The Loneliness of Lowry’. The Abbot Hall Gallery is showing the first major solo exhibition of Lowry to be on view outside of Salford in the last five years.  The artist travelled extensively in the North West as many of the works demonstrate.

Compelling seascapes, including The Empty Sea (1945), Seascape (1952) and The Grey Sea (1963), are joined by various dramatic landscape paintings featuring mountains and lakes, depicting scenery from around Cumbria.

Lowry claimed none of his paintings would have happened had he not been lonely. This exhibition, with its stunning landscape paintings, its vacant seascapes, moving portraits and quirky works such as Man Lying On A Wall (1957) and Man With Trilby Hat, draws on the loneliness theme in a truly moving way.

Many of the Lowry works are rarely accessible to art lovers, as they come from private collections, including those of London’s Crane Kalman Gallery. The opportunity to view these paintings, and other fabulous works, is not-to-be-missed.  The exhibition runs until 30th October 2010 and admission costs £5.75 for an adult and is free for children up to the age of 18, or age 25 if in full time education. It is open from Monday to Saturday, but closed on Sundays.
