The Football Match

Painted in 1949 by LS Lowry who, according to the BBC, was a Manchester City fan.

Lowry must have been in an upper floor apartment which gave him this sweeping view.  If not, what powers of observation and imagination he had! The stick figures were given life, dimension through the perspective from which they were drawn. And the fine details of their surroundings– truly a masterpiece.
