Lowry, L.S. (1887 – 1976)
A very rare signed 11″ X 14″ portrait by L.S. Lowry. Boldly signed to a light portion in ballpoint pen. A striking image of the older artist seated in a chair, clutching a handkerchief. An annotation to the lower border in another hand, some surface impressions and moderate overall creasing, mostly towards the edges, though not touching the handwriting, and not detracting from the striking presentation of the image. A marvellous example, and the first signed portrait we have handled. Signed photographs by the artists are decidedly uncommon.
