Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Lowry appears to give us an industrial society at its zenith. Yet he was aware that this world was disappearing even as he was painting it. As early as 1928 his father urged him to paint the blackened tower of St Simon’s Church in Pendlebury only months before it was demolished.
