28 June 2013 - 25 July 2013
Austin Desmond Fine Art is delighted to announce an exhibition of the work of James Lloyd (1905-1974), timed to coincide with the major L.S. Lowry exhibition at Tate Britain. In 1971, Lowry described Lloyd as the most important British naive painter of today. Both artists were from the North-West (born 30 miles apart) and while they were painting, both relied on income from regular jobs for most of their life. This exhibition will include over forty of his classic paintings and will be the first James Lloyd show since his retrospective at Camden Arts Centre in 1977. From the late 1950s until his death, he enjoyed a sequence of sell-out exhibitions in London, which were positively and widely reviewed. Lloyd’s paintings are held in British public collections including Tate, London, and in important international collections such as the Anthony Petullo Collection of Self-Taught & Outsider Art in Milwaukee, USA.
