Painted in 1959, Going to Work is one of Lowry’s relatively rare watercolours. The scene is a favourite Lowry theme and shows factory workers streaming to work against a backdrop of industrial mills and terraced houses. The top of the vase evokes the industrial skyline to create an unusual shape.

L. S. Lowry (1887-1976) is best known for painting industrial scenes of North West England in the mid 20th century. His characteristic style has a dreamlike quality, populated by stylised figures referred to as ‘matchstick men’. Although Lowry was trained in academic drawing, he chose to develop his own naive style which has brought him widespread recognition. His mysterious, weatherless landscapes express a personal response to the world around him that never fails to bewitch the viewer. Lowry’s paintings tell the true tale behind English city life.
