LESSON 4:
Vincent Van Gogh and
LS Lowry
VINCENT VAN GOGH
Vincent Van Gogh was
born on the 30th March
1853 at a time when
painters were
experimenting with new
modern methods of
painting.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
He began to learn
drawing skills at the age
of 13, which soon grew
into a great interest in
painting and art and a
desire to paint the
things around him.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
When he was a young man,
his brother, Theo, suggested
that he should become a
professional artist, though he
found it very difficult to sell
his brightly coloured
paintings.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
This type of painting was called
‘Expressionism’ and it has now made him
one of the most popular artists of all
time. The next picture is one of his most
famous paintings called ‘Starry night’.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
He is also famous for
his many painting of
sunflowers, which was
one of his favourite
subjects.

Laurence Stephen
Lowry was born in
Stretford, near
Manchester, on the
1st November 1887.
LS LOWRY
He had an interest in
drawing from a very early
age, but it wasn’t until the
age of 21 that he began to
draw and paint street
scenes from the town of
Pendlebury where he lived.
LS LOWRY
These became very famous
for their ‘matchstick men’
style as shown in these two
pictures ..

His work is not only
interesting to look at,

lots of information
