Two Memorable Men

Crispin Eurich (1935-1976)

L.S.Lowry (1887-1976)

L.S.Lowry by Crispin Eurich
Outside his House, Mottram-in-Longdendale 1962
Lowry needs no introduction but Crispin Eurich's work was in danger of being forgotten and deserves to be reinstated.

Like his father, Richard Eurich, RA, OBE, (1903-92), Crispin was trained as a painter. An accident to his hand caused him to turn to photography for which he had already won an international award. He was both versatile and successful, undertaking prestigious assignments for magazines, eg Studio International series of "Artists at work" and multi-nationals like Esso for whom he produced outstanding industrial images. In their different way some of them are as memorable as Lowry's. They are essentially photographic but he also brings a painter's eye to his subject - whether people, architecture, animals or seascapes - and this combination gives his work a rich sensitivity. Most of the Lowry drawings are spontaneous sketches dating from the 50's and 60's (one is for the large painting "Hillside in Wales" in the Tate Gallery). There are a few early ones including a detailed drawing of an interior with figures dating from the 20's.
