Adopt Coming from the Mill (1930)
This is one of Lowry’s most iconic works. In a letter to Salford Museum & Art Gallery Lowry wrote, 'It gives me great pleasure that Salford have bought this picture - for I have always thought it was my most characteristic mill scene.' The painting is based on an earlier pastel drawing Lowry made in about 1917 which was one of his first composite industrial scenes. As with all of Lowry's best known works Coming from the Mill is very carefully constructed, the figures leading the viewer's eye from scene to scene within the painting.
