Meaning & Analysis

Lowry seldom worked in watercolour as it is a far more fleeting medium than oil paint, drying very quickly and therefore not that flexible to work with. It is rare to see a Lowry watercolour and often his watercolour works like People Standing About are more vibrant in colour, this particular print showing contrasting colours such as green, burnt orange and blue.

Insistent on the fact that his portraits of people were of those he saw in and around Greater Manchester, this print shows a great variety of people from all walks of life. People Standing About is a print that is indicative of Lowry’s fascination with people and their unique qualities or quirks, prompting the viewer to look at the human presence in his famous landscape paintings differently.
