Commonly thought to be something of a recluse L S Lowry revelled in company, although he was insistent to almost a churlish degree on his right to choose it. Because his best known work is closely associated with scenes of industrial deprivation he was often assumed to be a man of socialist inclinations but he voted Conservative and had considerable admiration for Edward Heath. Truthfulness was not high on his list of priorities. He maintained he had never been anything but a painter when he worked a nine-to-five job (first as a rent collector and later in a managerial position) until he retired.
