Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life is a major exhibition of landscapes by the much-loved British painter LS Lowry (1887-1976). This is the first such show held by a public institution in London since
\nhis death. Bringing together around 80 works, including Tate’s 'Coming Out of School' (1927) and 'The Pond' (1950), alongside significant loans, the show aims to reassess Lowry’s contribution as part of a wider art history and to argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city.
\nWithout Lowry, Britain might lack an account in paint of the experiences of the 20th-century working class. The exhibition results from an invitation to the distinguished art historians TJ Clark and Anne M Wagner to reappraise Lowry for a new and extended audience.
