Three 'lost' Lowry sketches discovered hidden in cupboard for decades

The artworks were stashed among a bundle of other pictures once owned by a former teacher at the Liverpool School of Art, and after her death the assorted pieces were sold off and then kept in a cupboard for decades.

When clearing out the collection in order to salvage a picture frame, the present owner of the works noticed hidden drawings seemingly signed and dated by Lowry.

Three works, depicting a tramp, a lady visiting a country cottage, and the third is a sketch of an English landscape, have been authenticated and are set to be sold at auction for £20,000 each.

I'm not a Lowry fan. Looking at these pictures I can see why he opted for matchstick men! The drawings are very poorly done . . . look at the position of the wheels on the car! :lol: I'm surprised he was accepted at the art college.
