Lowry's reputation was slow to be established. In 1962 he was elected an RA. Lowry remained unconcerned by his growing fame and commercial success; from 1948 until his death he lived in the same small, unmodernised house in Cheshire.
Although Lowry is chiefly associated with street scenes and townscapes, his subject-matter was far more wide-ranging. He painted country scenes, as well as views of the seaside and of harbours. Though often represented as a reclusive man, his affection for relatives and close friends is shown in the Portrait of the Artist's Mother (1910; Salford, Mus. & A.G.). Occasionally he touched on current affairs, for example in Blitzed Site (1942; Salford, Mus. & A.G.), depicting the damage caused by a German air raid on Manchester in World War II, although recording events of this sort was never one of his main interests.
