Winter In Broughton is a lithograph from 1969 by L. S. Lowry showing a playful snow scene with figures walking and playing in front of a block of terraced houses. The landscape is very uneven, and creates a dramatic, dream-like composition with flowing lines. Like many of Lowry’s works, this scene is likely to have been drawn from memory or from the artist’s imagination.
This print is representative of Lowry’s stylised realism in the way that the scene does not show the effects of weather in the sky or landscape and the figures do not cast any shadows. Lowry gives the impression of a winter scene by rendering the trees without leaves, depicting the figures in their winter coats and showing the ground to be covered with deep snow.
Lowry’s lithographs like Winter In Broughton are produced by hand whereby a plate is etched and inked, and the paper is then pressed onto the plate to produce an original. Due to this printing process, no two prints are exactly the same. Editions like these are therefore relatively small, in this case 75, and as a result they are rare and highly sought after items.
