The Dickens of the Brush: JS Lowry at the Tate

Lot_19___Lowry_The_Railway_Platform_Full Very pleased JS Lowry is to get his first-ever retrospective in London. Isn’t it amazing that a painter that good, and that famous, has never been shown in the capital before? I suppose it’s because he’s so popular that he’s so often been overlooked. But no one has captured the essence of the industrial north quite as well as he. Lowry is as profound as he is accessible. A Dickens of the brush. Nice one Tate Britain.
