A forgotten masterpiece by Salford painter LS Lowry is being auctioned with a price tag of up to £500,000.
The painting of The Liver Building in Liverpool was bought by Vernon’s Pools founder Vernon Sangster in 1963.
It has remained in the family and has been seen in public only once – when it was exhibited at Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery in 1973.
Now the Sangster family is to sell the painting and two others by Lowry at Christie’s in London on 9 June.
