The book begins with the previously unpublished transcripts of the broadcasts which cast a unique light on Lowry’s art and developing reputation. In addition to all the usual elements of an art historical monograph on this scale Rosenthal has devoted chapters to Lowry’s technique, his visual friendship with his fellow painter David Carr; and a serious analysis and rebuttal of a theory that has advanced the view that Lowry suffered from Asperger’s Disease.

Rosenthal’s book is, and will remain, an indispensible guide to Lowry’s extensive oeuvre and the cultural and psychological forces that shaped it.
