The drawings are said to date from between the 1920’s to the 1960’s, ranging from sharp sketches to complete drawings, showcasing Lowry’s distinctive style.

This collection of drawings was first discovered on The Antiques Roadshow earlier this year and will be sold as individual pieces, ranging from £15,000 to £49,500.

Frankie Rowles of Rowles Fine Art Gallery commented: ““It is with great pleasure that we exhibit these pieces at the 2015 LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair. This collection is one of the most fabulous things we have had the privilege to sell”.

Highlights from the collection include: his sketchbook cover, a drawing with two people hand in hand (including visual notes written in red) and a drawing of St Thomas’s Church in Pendleton, Salford.

Michael Howard, author of Lowry: A Visionary Artist said: “I was stunned by their quality as drawings. Each of them, in different ways, possess qualities unique to Mr. Lowry and represent him working at his very best”.

The 2015 LAPADA Fair has been extended by a day in response to public demand, following last year’s success which welcomed approximately 20,000 collectors and visitors from around the world within five days.

The LAPADA Fair is an event that specialises in sourcing and buying art and antiques from 100 exhibitors. For more information on the fair visit: http://www.lapadalondon.com/ .
