Lowndes, Alan 1921-1978 British AR, Standing Nude
Lowndes, Alan 1921-1978 British AR, Standing Nude. 15 x 8.75ins., (38 x 22 cms.) Ink Wash, Signed. Alan Lowndes has often been dismissed as a naive painter, which is complete nonsense. He was a deeply intellectual man of very considerable intelligence, except for his love of alcohol. Mind you, many a great writer, intellectual and painter has suffered from the same weakness. Alan's drawings should never be underestimated, they are strong and go to the nub of scene without extra lines that confuse. Sometimes his drawings are stand alone or most commonly they were ideas for a painting.
