More on Lowry's Rowing Paintings
About Chris Dodd’s writing from 9 October on L. S. Lowry’s rowing paintings, and Tim Koch’s take in an earlier entry posted today, Greg Denieffe writes:
I have been interested in the Lowry rowing drawings/paintings for some time now. I have prints of bits and pieces that I found over the years and unbelievable as it seems, I was able to find them the day before yesterday – well all bar one (which from memory, I thought varied a bit from the two pencil drawings below).
I think the Bonhams’ catalogue for the May 2013 sale clarifies some dates and titles:
The present lot is almost certainly the most fully realised pencil drawing by L.S. Lowry of the Agecroft Regatta; at least one other example is known to exist, along with a later and very impressive, large oil painting, The Regatta (1949).
I love Lowry’s work and I am a sucker for Brian and Michael’s matchstalk song.
