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.

About the Author

Shelley Rohde first met L S Lowry when she was working for the Daily Mail. Subsequently she made with Granada Television the award-winning documentary L S Lowry: A Private View. She talked to Lowry several times before he died in 1976, at the age of eighty-eight, and became, in her words: 'an intemperate admirer of both the man and the artist'.

Reviews

'...The book is a visual delight, lavishly illustrated with photographs as well as reproductions that emphasise Lowry's variety, complexity, humanity..." Financial Times Magazine 'This handsome illustrated volume is a convincing reminder, that Lowry was a serious and talented artist, and that there is far more to his art, than quirky little stickmen.'
