by his Friend and Leg­endary Art Dealer Ge­orge Aird

Surely the best known North­ern artist of the Twen­ti­eth Cen­tury was the one and only L S Lowry. Fa­mous for paint­ing the in­dus­trial North West, his works now sell for mil­lions and his images are in­grained in our con­scious­ness.

Given the af­fec­tion with which Lowry’s paint­ings are held, the de­mand to own his work is in­tense but un­for­tu­nately the prices of his orig­i­nal paint­ings are out of the reach of most and even his signed lim­ited edi­tion prints have ap­pre­ci­ated into the thou­sands. With this in mind, Hep­ple­stone Fine Art were hon­oured to have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­hibit the works of his great friend and leg­endary art dealer, Ge­orge Aird.

Af­ter sixty years in the art busi­ness as a dealer, pub­lisher and framer to the great and the good of the North­ern art scene, Ge­orge Aird has called time on his iconic Grove Gal­leries busi­ness at the grand age of 84.
