The works go on sale at Durrants Auction Rooms in Beccles the same day a major exhibition opens in London displaying the best of Lowry’s urban scenes and industrial landscapes.

The 'Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life' opens at the Tate Britain on Friday June 26. It's the first of its kind held by a public institution in London since the artist’s death.
