Critical Review

More than once the artist described himself as “a simple man” - perhaps it is the simplicity of his pictures that make them so striking, Station Approach being the example. The atmosphere captured by the smoky train and frantic cloud of people seem unimaginable under the hand of a more precise academic painter. A few identifiable landmarks remain, such as the statue of Oliver Cromwell and Strangeways Prison on the right. Lowry painted this in the studio from memory as he did with many of his best loved pictures.
