Laurence Stephen Lowry, ‘Going to the Match’, 1972, Peter Harrington Gallery

Edition of 300, signed in pencil lower right by Lowry, with the Fine Art Trade Guild blindstamp lower left. The print is reproduced from an original 1953 oil painting of football fans converging on Burnden Park, Bolton Wanderers’ old football stadium. Originally titled Football Ground, the painting won first prize in a competition organized by the Football Association. This was a surprise to Lowry, who had no idea the picture had been entered. In 1999 the painting was bought by the Professional Footballers' Association for £1.9 million, a record price at the time for a Lowry painting.
