    PROVENANCE:
    Gifted by the artist to Angelo Salvini
    Thence by family descent

    The present and following two lots were in the collection of Angelo Salvini. He was the long serving Head Waiter at the George Hotel, Huddersfield of which Lowry was a regular patron. Known in the region as somewhat of a "local celebrity", Salvini struck up a bond with the artist over the course of his visits, and as a sign of his gratitude Lowry drew these works for him on separate occasions.
