Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life
“I saw the industrial scene and I was affected by it. I tried to paint it all the time. I tried to paint the industrial scene as best I could. It wasn’t easy.”
These are words spoken by the much loved British painter L.S.Lowry. Tate Britain is showing the first major exhibition of landscapes by the artist since his death. Focusing on the best of Lowry’s urban scenes and industrial landscapes including Tate’s ‘Coming Out of School’, 1927 and ‘The Pond’, 1950. Alongside significant loans, this carefully selected exhibition aims to re-assess Lowry’s contribution to art history and to argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city until the 20th October 2013.

Michael Landy: Saints Alive
Saints are not often associated with contemporary artwork but the topic is being revisited for a new autumn exhibition by the current Rootstein Hopkins Associate Artist in Residence at the National Gallery, Michael Landy. Taking fragments of old National Gallery paintings Landy has created 3D masterpieces containing old machinery and cogs to construct the works. Towering over you, the seven sculptures swivel and turn, in movements that evoke the drama of each saint’s life. See Saints Apollonia, Catherine, Francis and more until the 24th November 2013.
