Rare oil painting by LS Lowry expected to sell for more than £100,000

It is expected to achieve £120,000 to £180,000 when it is sold at Duke's Auctioneers, Dorchester, on September 17.

A spokesperson for Duke's said: "The clients selling the picture were aware of Duke’s being in Dorchester as they had heard we had sold many other major works of art and as we have a consultant working for Duke’s in the Liverpool area the connection was made. It is unusual that such an important Lowry is being sold outside of both London and the North in what is comparatively a very small and rural county against the usual Lowry industrial townscapes of Manchester and Liverpool. It provides a nice contrast."
