'Who are they Sir? They are my friends and neighbours. Look along Stalybridge Road and you will see every one of them - all done from life ... all done from life. That's a good title - FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS - but it might offend so let's call it FAMILY GROUP - but they are still there, just take a look around. What did I tell you Sir, what did I tell you? They are all outside, every one of them - even the dog!' (L.S. Lowry quoted in a letter from L.A. Ives to Caroline Collier, 14 September 1987).
Artist's Resale Right ("Droit de Suite"). Artist's Resale Right Regulations 2006 apply to this lot, the buyer agrees to pay us an amount equal to the resale royalty provided for in those Regulations, and we undertake to the buyer to pay such amount to the artist's collection agent.
Three works that illustrate how, as his circumstances changed, L.S. Lowry’s emphasis shifted and his paintings of city life took on a more carefree quality
