Drawings of L.S. Lowry with an introduction and Notes by Mervyn Levy

Category: Art

London, Cory, Adam & Mackay. 1963.


First edition; 4to; original half buckram binding. Inscribed on the title page, 'With all good wishes L.S. Lowry. I am glad you wanted to do this work - and did it'. Together with Mervyn Levy's working notebook and the original notes for the introduction which has also been signed and dated in ink to the last page of notes 'L.S. Lowry 5 May 1963'. Mervyn Levy (1914 –1996) was a Welsh artist, art teacher and writer on art. Born in Swansea, where he became a friend of the painter Alfred Janes, the poet Dylan Thomas and the musician Daniel Jones, he spent most of his teaching career in Bristol and London, and made several popular television series about painting techniques. He published monographs on contemporary artists, and a catalogue raisonnee of the works of his friend L. S. Lowry. His pencil portrait of LS Lowry (1961), is held at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Coventry. Fine, just a little wear to the extremities.
