L S Lowry art for sale


‘Harbour with Fishing Boats’ by L S Lowry

Oil on board
8.25 x 10.5 inches
Signed and dated (lower left)


Laurence Stephen Lowry had a lifelong fascination with the sea and sketched and painted seascapes throughout his long career.

Juxtaposed with his bustling industrial scenes filled with scurrying figures, Lowry’s seascapes are imbued with a sense of calm and nostalgia for childhood holidays on the North West coast.  He liked to travel along the Fylde Coast,  a coastal area of western Lancashire, not too far from his hometown.

Indeed, the artist’s mother, who never liked his industrial work, only once voiced any praise for a painting – another scene of boats at Lytham that Lowry was to hang in his bedroom for the rest of his life. This beautiful oil exemplifies Lowry’s masterly use of flake-white, here employed as both sea and sky almost merging into one; the yachts providing notes of colour and movement against the shimmering, light-filled sea.

May 17th is nearly upon us, I’m sure some of you will be sailing away to foreign climes, or perhaps venturing further afield around the United Kingdom. If you do happen to find yourself in the beautiful Cotswolds, we are currently exhibiting a fantastic selection of artwork including this extraordinary oil, and would be delighted, as always, to see you.

In this week’s newsletter, we are also giving you the opportunity to explore our art advisory, Cotswolds. If you are looking to consign your artwork then please fill out the form with more details in our Gallery News section below.

We are privileged to be working with some hugely talented contemporary artists, all of which are on display at our Contemporary & Modern gallery.

As we see bursts of colour coming through now Spring is in full swing, who better to focus on than Columbian born artist Astor Milan Salcedo. Astor intends his pieces to be a visual journey for the soul, something for the observer to indulge and lose themselves in. Astor Milan Salcedo began his working life as a fashion/portrait photographer, before progressing to an award-winning career in documentary filmmaking.

In 2004 he worked as a Creative Director in the world of fashion on commercials for Hugo Boss, Gucci and Swarovski. In 2009 he won the highest award in German television, Deutscher Fernsehpreis for his documentary ‘Die Bombe’. Driven by his passion for art, painting became his focus in 2012. Astor’s abstract paintings and overpainted photographs centre on mankind and it’s vital relation to nature. He is fascinated with our struggle for a balanced life and our constant pursuit to reach personal happiness.

His work today shows an expression of his inner feelings. He paints by applying multiple layers, inviting the observer to dive into the colours and explore the shapes and forms on the canvas.

Although Henry Moore is best known as a sculptor, drawing was critical to his artistic practice.

Drawing was essential to Moore as a tool for close looking: “Drawing, even for people who cannot draw, even for people not trying to produce a good drawing, it makes you look more intensely … Just looking alone has no grit in it, has no sort of mental struggle or difficulty.‘

Reclining Figure, 1980’ is illustrated in this particular volume and is illustrated on p. 119.

Henry Moore


His 1980s Late Drawings depict individual images which  link to Moore’s sculptural practice, also to significant events in his life and often, although not always explicitly, to particular objects elsewhere in the studios, house and gardens.

In the last years of his life, his ill health meant he could not make sculpture, and drawing became more important than ever.

He leaves us with a real sense of  joy and energy  found in the medium of drawing, as well as a real appreciation of the respect and tenderness with which he approached the human body as a vehicle for communication in his artistic practice.
