Critical Review

This print is typical of Lowry’s scenes of people, showing the children standing in a row against a white background that offers no situational context. Though rendered without much detail, each child appears distinctly unique with their own character traits. Group Of Children is a print that is indicative of Lowry’s fascination with people and their unique qualities or quirks, prompting the viewer to look at his famous landscape paintings differently.

Much like many of Lowry’s scenes, this print is depicted in a limited palette of muted colours. Lowry often claimed to use just five colours in his paintings, vermillion, ivory black, Prussian blue, yellow ochre and flake white. By only using white in the background and stripping the scene of any context, this print forces the viewer to contemplate the figures in the image, who they are and why Lowry has chosen to paint them.
