Critical Review

Lowry was born in Stretford, Lancashire, in 1887, however the artist moved to Pendlebury near Manchester, a city where he drew much artistic inspiration. Lowry was fascinated with industrial landscapes and the people that inhabited and worked in them. While many of Lowry’s drawings, paintings and prints depict industrial settings that capture the monotony of working life, this print conveys the calm and tranquillity of Lytham. The artist was always drawn to the sea and sketched and painted seascapes throughout his impressive artistic career.

The print shows Lowry’s famous ‘matchstick men’ wandering around the beach. While Lowry has been criticised for the lack of individualism among these human figures, the small, simple and indistinct forms have become a signature element of the artist’s visual style.
