Born in 1887 in Manchester, England, artist Laurence Stephen Lowry moved in 1909 with his family to Pendlebury, an area filled with factories and mills. This began his fascination with sketching and painting the workers passing by his home and nearby industrial scenes. Having had great success artistically in the latter part of his life, artist Laurence Stephen Lowry became one of Britain's most revered painters. He was appointed Official Artist for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. Lowry's signed prints still remain highly sought after; his simple depictions of everyday working life in the industrial areas of South Lancashire evoke strong memories of the past. Lowry paintings prices can be quite staggering given the artist's popularity and prestige, some reaching as high as $100,000.
