Acquired in 1970 and passed by decent to the previous owner
Private Collection, U.K.
The present work relates to L.S. Lowry's 1957 oil A House in Cornwall (Private Collection, see Andras Kalman & Andrew Lambirth, L.S. Lowry, Conversation Pieces, Chaucer Press, London, 2003, p.130-131). Of this work Lambirth notes:
The building's railing and size and architectural design are all most unusual, and the stark wall that Lowry placed around it is typical of the affinity that he felt with anything solitary or isolated or lonely. Even the telegraph poles are somehow echoing Lowry's solitariness. And the further up, there's the beginning of another habitation. But there is something haughty, almost arrogant about the first house, as if it could have no neighbours, nor tolerate them if it had (op.cit).
The father of the present owner was good friends with the artist Harold Riley who assisted him in the formation of his art collection.
