Next Luncheon

Monday 15th January 2018

1283rd  Luncheon

Royston Futter



"L. S. Lowry as an artist rather than as a person"


The Holiday Inn.   25 Aytoun Street, Manchester M1 3AE
for Sat Navs use M1 3DT


Luncheon sponsored by Anonymous donor

The talk encompasses quite a lot about the art and craft of being an artist. The emphasis is on Lowry as a great all round artist rather than the popular perception of the chap who was  born in Salford, who lived in Salford ( both wrong incidentally) and wandered around painting matchstick men.
