    Clitheroe, a rural town located in the Borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire, was popular with L.S. Lowry and he painted the present view on a number of occasions. Although Lowry is perhaps best known for his images of the industrialised north with factories, chimneys and bustling streets, he was also intrigued by the quieter aspects of life and this can be seen in Street in Clitheroe. In the present composition, one can see how the artist has eloquently ordered the space to give a sense of the scale of the subject of his work. Lowry has created a low vantage point and steep rise in the road over the brow of the hill and by cutting off the buildings at the edges, he reinforces a feeling of space and continuity.
