Lowry's Coronation St
L.S. Lowry's painting of the real Coronation Street (1957) in Salford comes up for sale in Christie's London auction of 20th Century British & Irish Art at King Street next Thursday 26 May. Lowry painted it only three years before Granada took the name for its interminable soap opera. Christie's estimates its value at between £300,000 and £500,000 ($484,500 and $807,500). There are at least 10 other Lowry works in the same sale, including The Football Match, valued at £3.5m to £4.5m.
