THE ARTIST. Lowry said of this painting, 'To say the truth, I was not thinking very much about the people... They were part of a private beauty that haunted me!' His works were created in his own unique style, poetic yet not sentimental, compelling, even at times disturbing, but never judgemental. THE FINAL WORD. As William Morris said, Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

L S Lowry is one of Britain's best-loved artists. In "LS Lowry: Conversation Pieces", gallery owner Andras Kalman tells of his long friendship with the man and his experiences as a dealer in Lowry's work. An Hungarian émigré, Kalman opened his first gallery in Manchester in 1949 - an establishment that soon attracted a visit from the great Mancunian artist. Lowry not only bought a work on display but immediately agreed that Kalman become a dealer in his work. The two men became firm friends and their relationship continued until Lowry's death. Now in his eighties, Kalman recalls Lowry in conversation with the writer and critic Andrew Lambirth, drawing a vivid picture of the private man. A sensitive, somewhat reclusive character, Lowry showed himself only to a handful of intimates, and Kalman gives a sympathetic account of his client and friend, drawing attention to the seldom-recognised breadth of his work. Illustrated by 80 paintings, Lowry's best-known works are displayed, along with lesser-known works of equal boldness and originality. A remarkable insight into the life and unique talent of a great British artist.

This book investigates the iconic architectural cultural spaces of the contemporary cityscape as engines of regeneration. Promising much to their fading locales, these spaces locate culture in the space where production once ruled in order to revitalise post-industrial urban provinces. With close attention to four sites across the UK, Urban Constellations engages with the work of Walter Benjamin and Jean Baudrillard, to read these spaces and in so doing, offer a critical intervention into the theory and experience of contemporary cityscapes. Developing the notion of surface ethnography as a methodological approach to examining the form of cultural experience produced by urban cultural spaces, the author sheds light on the manner in which they transform cultural spectatorship, express wider political and ecological concerns and offer differing views to the ’native’ and the ’tourist’ in the construction of local history. The book also examines the decline of the idea that iconic projects can drive regeneration, in the failures and delays that can beset such undertakings. Offering a rich examination of the legacy of urban change in its most recent formulation - that of cultural regeneration - this book reveals the fragile potential of the spaces produced by contemporary ’dream houses’ and as such, will be of interest to scholars of cultural studies, sociology and social theory, urban studies, cultural geography and architecture.

As schools are being encouraged to develop more flexible and creative approaches to education, Using the Visual Arts for Cross-curricular Teaching and Learning provides practical guidance and ideas on using the visual arts as a starting point for imaginative, effective learning across a wide range of curriculum subjects. Underpinned by established and current educational thinking, it uses real-life examples to explore how this approach has been used successfully by individual class teachers and as whole-school projects. Offering proven strategies supporting the principles of personalized learning, it will help you involve children in devising cross-curricular themes and setting their own lines of enquiry. Supplemented throughout with case studies and ideas for great artworks to get projects started, as well as examples of children’s own work, it explores: developing individual pupils' talent and respect for their own and other cultures; using a single painting as a starting point for learning in a range of subjects; finding inspiration for your own cross-curricular projects using the visual arts; underpinning all activities with educational purpose; planning for and assessing progression in learning; discovering and using art resources in your region. The tried and tested strategies in Using the Visual Arts for Cross-curricular Teaching and Learning will give all primary school teachers the confidence to explore the benefits of placing the visual arts at the centre of a creative, appealing curriculum.
