Feel the Joy of Childhood in L.S. Lowry’s “Cricket Match” | Sotheby’s London

A Cricket Match’, by one of Britain’s best-loved artists, L.S. Lowry places children center stage as they play on the tough streets of an industrial northern city at the turn of the 20th century. Ahead of a summer of cricket with England and Wales staging the ICC Cricket World Cup, the painting is an emotional reminder of the joy of childhood games while serving as a counter-point to the burdensome life of work. ‘A Cricket Match’ comes from the collection of Neil and Gina Smith and is a highlight of Sotheby’s upcoming Modern & Post-War British Art sale June 18 & 19 in London.
