Skipping through the Times of London online ...

... I noticed that tomorrow is the anniversary of the birth of L.S. Lowry, a painter I can't remember having heard of. As it happens, his work is very much worth looking at. You can see for yourself at the Lowry Educational Site. I can imagine some will not agree. But I spent the first nine years of my life in the shadow of factories. They seemed beautiful to me, especially at night, and to this day I enjoy paintings of industrial scenes.
