Laurence Stephen Lowry RBA RA spent many a holiday at Berwick-upon-Tweed from the 1930"s and one can see examples of town and seascapes he painted. He was a fascinated by the sea and often painted many empty seascapes. His colour palette was black, white and blue grey that represented the colours of the north-east. It was a miserable day when we visited and it rained so hard we were soaked to the skin making our way back to the car.
