Beloved British artist L.S. Lowry (Timothy Spall) lived all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth (Vanessa Redgrave). Bed-ridden and bitter, Elizabeth actively tried to dissuade her bachelor son from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to voice her opinion at what a disappointment he was to her.
L.S. Lowry became
internationally famous for his depictions of 20th century industrial life in
the North West of England, and the legacy of his work remains a huge presence
in the region, not least at The Lowry, a purpose-built art gallery in Salford
Quays. Such was his eventual success that he was offered five honours over his
lifetime, including a knighthood in 1968 – all of which he rejected – and his
work was displayed in a retrospective, record-breaking exhibition at the Tate.
His work sells for millions.
