A tutor of Lowry’s at Salford School of Art, Percy Warburton struck up a close friendship with his student that lasted until Warburton’s death in 1969. Lowry liked him as a tutor ‘because he let me get on with it’, and the artist became a regular visitor to the Warburtons’ home in Holcombe Brook, near Bury, on one occasion borrowing a box of watercolours from Percy’s daughter to try them out. Warburton later became Head of The School of Art in Bury, and persuaded Lowry to become President of The Bury Art Society. Please also see lot 151.
