James Lawrence Isherwood (1917–1989)
Lawrence Isherwood was an English artist, born in Wigan, Lancashire, where he ran the Isherwood gallery. He is widely known for his prolific impressionist/expressionist styles. Isherwood travelled extensively and had over 200 shows, including colleges at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Isherwood was an eccentric, controversial character whose work was uneven , often garish and awkward, but who could occasionally produce a telling image, as seen when a large body of it was included in the Northern art show at the Mall Galleries.
Isherwood was a friend of the artist L. S. Lowry, who purchased his Woman with Black Cat and displayed it at his home. Lowry paid £5 for the picture from Isherwood’s Av Guard exhibition in Manchester. Other known collectors include Prince Charles, who bought one of Isherwood’s seascapes from a sale held at Cambridge University.
