Unearthed Lowry chats reveal a ‘drifter’ who never found love

She explained they would talk at length and though Lowry was a notoriously private man, the 85-year-old opened up to her across more than 20 hours of recording.

The interviews, which were unearthed in their entirety for the first time after her death in 2022, include Lowry’s reflections on life, love and, of course, his art.

“I began to think there is something in it… then I began to think there was a lot in it.”
