An Organ Grinder 1934
L.S. Lowry 1887-1976
Oil on canvas

This painting shows how Valette's influence weakened
as Lowry developed his own, idiosyncratic style.
Nevertheless, the dark figures set against a pale backdrop
derives principally from Valette's paintings,
particularly the foreground figure in Albert Square.
