Dockside, Sunderland Lowry 50x70cm PosterDockside, Sunderland L.S. Lowry 50x70cm Poster. TWCMS : R321. Actual image size 45x62cm. Original painting held at Sunderland Museums & Winter Garden. This is a view over the Lambton Drops on the River Wear, seen from Lowry's favourite vantage point. In this version a row of small railway wagons appears in the foreground, while in 'River Wear at Sunderland' they have been transformed into huts. Many of Lowry's industrial paintings of the Manchester-Salford area are composite images, mixing real and imaginary features. He called them 'dreamscapes'. Many of his paintings of the North East show a similar approach - instantly recognisable, but not necessarily accurate in detail.
