First Look: A Cricket Match by L.S. Lowry

London | 17 November 2022

A Cricket Match is a wonderful example of Lowry at his very best, in what is arguably his best decade as an artist, the 1930s, where he fully establishes the rules and parameters of his unique vision. It seems at first-glance to be a simple ‘slice of life’ and yet the painting is constructed very carefully, in both the way the narrative unfolds and also in how it releases its emotion. We see this masterpiece now returning to the forefront Modern British & Irish Art.
