The Basket makers was published as an open edition, calendar print of decorative value only.
It is similar in many ways to 'Les Osiers' ; an original watercolour painting for sale.
This is an old process, where the wicker, or cane was soaked in water then split and woven
into strong baskets that would often be used for many years.

The signed prints and paintings of L.S.Lowry have been increasing in value on a regular basis and his work according to recent studies, is now more sought after and of greater investment value than many modern artists.
