Laurence Stephen Lowry (1887–1976) was born in Old Trafford and studied in the evening at Manchester Municipal College of Art. He was a solitary man who rarely left the North West, finding his inspiration in the landscape of North Wales and Lancashire, and in the streets of Manchester and Salford. Lowry restricted his palette to black, vermillion, Prussian blue, yellow ochre and flake white. Whilst there is a naivety in his rendition, he deftly caught the hustle and bustle of men, women and dogs on the move against a background of terraced houses, mills and factories.
