Recapture the Joy of Childhood in Lowry’s Cricket Match

LONDON | 18 - 19 JUNE

In ‘A Cricket Match’, one of Britain’s best-loved artists, L.S. Lowry gives children centre stage as they play on the tough streets of an industrial northern city at the turn of the 20th century. Ahead of a glorious summer of cricket with England and Wales staging the ICC Cricket World Cup, the painting is an emotional reminder of the joy of childhood games and a counter-point to the burdensome life of work. ‘A Cricket Match’ comes from the collection of Neil and Gina Smith and is a highlight of our upcoming sale Modern & Post-War British Art (18 – 19 June | London).
