Conducting investigations into the Authenticity of the art, drawings and paintings of  L. S. LOWRY

 

 

 

  So the question is simple, do I have a real Lowry painting tucked away under the bed that Grandma swore was authentic or not?

 

Some real Lowrys have emerged from the shadows as a long lost forgotten painting that is now rediscovered. But notorious British art forger Shaun Greenhalgh, is one faker who created many a fake Lowry painting, as did amateur artist David Henty. He admits to selling hundreds of fake paintings claiming to be by different artists through his EBay site over the past five years, including dozens of fake Lowry's.

Step one in the art  authentication process.

The pre-authentication assessment.

 

 Before you enter into a full investigation into the legitimacy of a work of art you believe may be by L S Lowry, it is essential to know if the project is viable in the long term and worth progressing.

 So, we prefer to make a preliminary and vital professional pre-authentication assessment for clients first. This is based upon the images you supply and the full details and the work of art's history and provenance.

This is a logical and cost effective professional study and advisory for which there is a modest set fee. Then you'll know exactly where you stand.

 

Please see our FAQ's which explains the process in detail.

So is this an authentic painting  by L. S. LOWRY or is it a  Fake?  >

 

  The Canadian owners didn't think so after they bought the

purported legitimate Lowry painting from a Canadian auction house.

Painted on wood, this Lowry measures about 8 " x 4"

 

Legitimate authentic Lowry painting

 

 The painting above is purportedly by the British artist Laurence Stephen Lowry - 1887 - 1976, but is it a Fake Lowry, or the real thing?

 

 

 

ABOUT LOWRY:

 Laurence Stephen Lowry RBA RA., is best known for his "matchstick men and women". For making paintings of people in the industrial towns of the north of England, with factories, chimneys and smoke filled industrial landscapes.

 Stephen Lowry grew up in Stretford, now a suburb of Manchester, England and most of his work portrays quite desolate urban landscapes and anonymous busy figures.

Lowry as an artist was inspired by a strange ‘beauty’ he described seeing on the streets. Like the Lowry above.

   

 

 

 

 

 Compare the painting of his figures in the work bought in Canada> to that of a detail from one of his known paintings on the far right.

You may notice something.

 

Lowry fake detailDetail
Detail from legitimate L S Lowry workLegitimate Lowry image

Look at the quality of the painting in the detail from the painting on the left and you will see a distinct lack of clarity if you compare it to the precision displayed by Lowry with people and dogs.


Ask yourself a very simple question. Is it really good enough to be by Lowry?

 Whilst some may say Lowry's work is childlike, Lowry's figures are still very defined, full of clarity and character and certainly not just blobs of paint!

 

  

Fake Lowry signature

^ IS  THIS A  LEGITIMATE  LOWRY SIGNATURE ?

Authentic - Lowry Signature

Above: Authentic - Lowry Signature

 

 Now take a good look at the construction of Lowry's signature above and compare it to the Lowry signature on our oil painting from Canada on the left

Follow the actual construction of each letter carefully, left to right, up and down and then compare like with like. Which Lowry is right?

As you can see, the signature construction in our painting is VERY different indeed. Look closely at the S the W and the R and the  Y
