Painting Of The Week - David Henty's recreation of L.S Lowry 'The Procession'
"One of the greatest art forgers of the 20th and 21st century" - Sky Arts
This week we have chosen 'The Procession' painted by David Henty, after L.S Lowry.
David is very fond of Lowry's artwork and his style, hence why he continues to recreate his artwork years' down the line.
David likes to move on from artists and challenge himself with harder, more intricate paintings, to also offer his collectors a wider variety - however, his passion for painting a Lowry will never fade.
This particular painting was featured on Tuesday's (16th May) episode of Fake! The Great Masterpiece Challenge on Sky Arts. The challenge was to identify the fake along with a few other replica paintings and an original Joseph Turner; which they had to identify as the real deal!
David's painting was chosen by the viewers as 'the real deal' which was great!
David was also classed as 'one of the greatest art forgers/copyists of the 20th and 21st century'!
