L.S. Lowry: Artist of the People  Exhibition at Art Museum of Nanjing University of the Arts, China

L.S.LOWRY (1887-1976) is one of the most important and famous British artists of the Twentieth Century, yet he is barely known in the rest of the world. Lowry has been the subject of more than 340 exhibitions from the early 1900’s to the present day yet “L. S. Lowry: Artist of the People”, the show opening in November 2014 at the Art Museum of Nanjing University of the Arts is incredibly Lowry’s first ever museum exhibition overseas. With nearly thirty oil paintings and works on paper selected carefully from British public and private collections, this event in Nanjing is a very special occasion. Following the artists widely acclaimed retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain, London in 2013, the collection of works at AMNUA will enable a new public to explore and value Lowry’s art – in Nanjing, China and hopefully beyond. We are proud to present this exhibition, and its associated events, to the public at this moment.

L.S.洛瑞(L.S.LOWRY, 1887-1976)是英国20世纪最重要和知名的现代艺术家之一,但却不为其他国家的人们所熟知。自1900年到今日,洛瑞的作品出现在340个艺术展览中,而2014年11月14日在中国南京艺术学院美术馆开幕的《L.S.洛瑞:艺术家·人民》则是洛瑞在英国本土以外的美术馆的首次个展。此次展览汇聚的近三十幅洛瑞具有代表性的油画及纸本作品,均由我们精心挑选自英国重要的公共和私人收藏。继2013年英国泰特美术馆的大型回顾展之后,这次展览能够使来自南京、中国甚至更大范围的新观众有机会欣赏洛瑞的作品并了解它们的价值。所以,我们很荣幸在当下向公众推出该展览及相关活动。
