The Shambles, York by James Lawrence Isherwood
An original oil on board painting by the late Wigan artist James Lawrence Isherwood. Painted and dated 1954, this is one of the earliest examples of Isherwood’s oil paintings to come to market and was owned by Isherwood’s dentist since the 1950s. The painting can be traced back to Isherwood’s fourth ever exhibition which was held in Chorley where this piece was catalogued as ‘Shambles York’. One of the rarest 1950s pieces available and a superb demonstration of the evolution of the artist’s technique since the early stages of his career.
