Lowry collection belonging to Newmarket businessman set to fetch big fee

Lowry's 'Piccadilly Circus'.

A collection of L.S. Lowry paintings which belonged to a Newmarket businessman has been tipped to fetch around £15 million at auction next month.

The collection was owned by the late Tony Thompson, who ran a paper recycling business, and accumulated the artworks over the course of three decades.

They'll go under the hammer at Sotheby's in London.
