PORTRAIT OF ANN - EPOXY MAGNET

ITEM CODE: 94085

An epoxy magnet featuring L.S Lowry's iconic 'Portrait of Ann' artwork.

 

Who was Ann? She figures in many of his works but has never been identified, and may have been the embodiment for Lowry of the ideal woman – but those who heard him speak of her never doubted her existence.

 

Her features are distinctive - full, red lips and dark hair, parted in the centre and secured in a long, black plait. Lowry was a great admirer of the Pre-Raphaelite painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s portraits of women. Rossetti’s poem, A Last Confession, includes the description ‘She had a mouth made to bring death to life ... Her face was pearly pale ... Her great eyes, sometimes turned half-dizzily beneath the passionate lids ...’
