THE two rare LS Lowry pencil drawings that were discovered at a family home in Huddersfield have sold for more than expected.
The first drawing entitled Polling Station sold for £24,725 after an original estimate of between £8,000 and £12,000.
The second, which depicted a beach scene at Sandsend, near Whitby sold for £26,450.
The auction, held at Leeds-based, Gary Don Auctioneers received great interest from galleries across the UK.
But the pair of drawings were sold to two private art investors.
Auctioneer Gary Don said: “It did better than we expected. The entire auction was a fantastic success, we had great interest from galleries including Grove Galleries in Manchester.
“We also sold an Arthur Delaney oil painting, one of his signature trams, for £12,075.
“That is a record, the highest price before that was £8,500.”
