L S Lowry Original Drawing Erotic Nudes Hand Signed Vintage
L S Lowry Rare Original Graphite Erotic Figure Circa 1972.
Signed By The Artist.
This is an exceptional investment opportunity to acquire an extraordinary and rare Lowry original work of art.
Drawn in graphite pencil onto matte heavy wove stock with blank verso, the artwork measures approximately 16cm x 21cm.
The drawing is hand signed in pencil, it is in excellent condition and the lines and contours are vivid and vibrant. It is an ORIGINAL WORK and NOT a lithograph or print of any kind. It is certainly a magnificent and arresting piece.
A truly terrific ORIGINAL DRAWING. This is another side of the Matchstick Man – these drawings only came to light after Lowry’s death in 1976 and reflect his fascination with certain erotic devices.
As there is no provenance we are
deemed (as per eBay's Rules) to sell this painting 'in the style or
manner of' Lowry.

L S Lowry 1887-1976
English painter. On leaving school in 1904, he began work in Manchester as a clerk with a firm of chartered accountants, studying painting and drawing in the evenings at the Municipal College of Art (1905–15), and at Salford School of Art (1915–25). In 1910 he became a rent collector and clerk with the Pall Mall Property Company in Manchester; he remained a full-time employee and eventually chief cashier until his retirement in 1952. Despite his unusually long period as an art student, he regarded himself as self-taught. He drew inspiration from his surroundings, particularly Pendlebury, near Manchester, where he lived from 1909 to 1948.
Lowry’s reputation was slow to be established. In 1962 he was elected an RA. Lowry remained unconcerned by his growing fame and commercial success; from 1948 until his death he lived in the same small, unmodernised house in Cheshire.
Although Lowry is chiefly associated with street scenes and townscapes, his subject-matter was far more wide-ranging. He painted country scenes, as well as views of the seaside and of harbours. Though often represented as a reclusive man, his affection for relatives and close friends is shown in the Portrait of the Artist’s Mother (1910; Salford, Mus. & A.G.). Occasionally he touched on current affairs, for example in Blitzed Site (1942; Salford, Mus. & A.G.), depicting the damage caused by a German air raid on Manchester in World War II, although recording events of this sort was never one of his main interests.
