Publisher's description: L. S. Lowry (1887-1976) is one of the most celebrated painters of twentieth-century England, beloved for his often mysterious paintings of urban landscapes and the masses of quiet people who populated them. This book fleshes out our understanding of Lowry's life and work through a combination of historical investigation and the presentation of previously little-seen sources, including unpublished transcripts of BBC broadcasts in which Lowry talked about his approach, interests, and technique. T. G. Rosenthal, the leading authority on Lowry, also offers close examination of Lowry's friendship with painter David Carr and takes on claims that Lowry suffered from Asperger's Syndrome. This new edition of Rosenthal's best known book includes an obituary published at the time of the author's death in 2014 but otherwise appears to be a straight reprint of the original edition.
