    “Steps at Wick” by L.S. Lowry is expected to make £500,000-800,000 at Bonhams sale of Modern British and Irish art in London next November 20.  The artist used to holiday in Scotland in the 1930’s and this work is signed and dated 1937. Wick is a fishing town in Caithness.  Known locally at The Black Steps the vantage point from where Lowry painted the work is commemorated with an engraved plaque on the site.

    Penny Day, of the Modern British and Irish Art Department at Bonhams, comments: “We are privileged and delighted to be offering such an important, striking Lowry which has not been available for over 20 years.  With the market for the artist stronger than ever and alongside the interest in the current Tate exhibition, we expect collectors will seize the opportunity to acquire this early tour de force”.
