LS Lowry Nudes

If you didn't already know the answer, you'd never guess who drew these two Life Studies (c.1916). LS Lowry. He drew them on a sketchpad during evening classes in Manchester around 1916, the year before he began his famous matchstick-men paintings. A man from Great Yarmouth bought them in 1989 for £3,800. At Durrants auctioneers in Suffolk they fetched £18,100 (CLICK).
