Edition of 750. Woman with a Beard signed in pencil lower right by Lowry. Fine Art Trade Guild blindstamp lower left. Preliminary Sketch with the Fine Art Trade Guild blindstamp lower middle. These prints were issued as a pair. Printed after a 1957 oil painting. When a bearded woman boarded Lowry’s railway compartment at Newport he was delighted. ‘Well Sir’ he told a friend, ‘I could not let such an opportunity pass so I began almost at once to make a drawing of her on a bit of paper. At first she was greatly troubled but we talked and by the time the train had reached Paddington we were the best of friends – we even shook hands on the platform.’

2 prints. Colour offset lithograph on heavy wove paper. Image size: 58.5 x 48.3 cm. Black and white offset on heavy wove paper. Image size: 21.3 x 10.4 cm. Excellent condition. Both presented in contemporary gilt frames with conservation mount and glass.
