The Meeting Point shows two separate male and female crowds flowing towards a central tall, red tower in the centre of the composition. Using his signature colour palette, Lowry painted the work in 1965, the same year he received The Freedom of the City of Salford, considered an honour of the highest order to be bestowed upon an individual by the city council. In the previous year prestigious critics and artists such as Kenneth Clark and Henry Moore dedicated appreciative, praising writings to Lowry’s practice within the framework of A Tribute to Lowry, taking place at the Monks Hall Museum in Salford. These years mark the high points of the artist’s fame, even though he had never been interested in the spotlight. In 1966, Arts Council England organised a large-scale exhibition of his works, which toured through major cities across the UK such as Sunderland, Bristol, Manchester and London’s Tate.
