A recently discovered painting by British artist LS Lowry sold for more than £2.6 million after 70 years in the hands of a pioneering DNA researcher who helped discover the double helix.

The Mill, Pendlebury was painted in 1943 and depicts an industrial landscape in the north west of England, inspired, like the majority of Lowry's work, by the mills, factories, chimney stacks and bustle of the country's industrial heartlands.

A painting by LS Lowry that experts had no knowledge of for more than 70 years has sold at Its existence came to light after the death of medical researcher Leonard D Hamilton, the Lowry gave the painting to Mr Hamilton's parents more than 70 years ago, when the family lived in Manchester.

The piece shows the Acme Spinning Company Mill, which became the first in Britain to be powered entirely by electricity when it opened in 1905.

But it also features clearly defined figures of families enjoying a day out, instead of the vaguer 'matchstick' men in the shadow of the urban landscape that recur in many of his paintings.

The art world was unaware of the painting's existence until the death of Manchester-born scientist Dr Leonard D Hamilton - who helped discover the structure of DNA - in August last year.

Hamilton bought the painting in the early stages of Lowry's career and hung it in his room while studying medicine at the University of Oxford.

SCIENTIST WHO HELD THE £2.6M PAINTING FOR 70 YEARS

While working at the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York, Leonard D Hamilton developed a technique for extracting DNA.

The rich DNA samples created by his technique allowed Maurice Wilkins of King's College London to generate the X-ray crystallography images from which went on to reveal DNA's double-helix structure.

The discovery earned Mr Wilkins, James Watson and Francis Crick the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

He took it with him when he moved to the US in 1949, where he went on to make a major contribution to the discovery of the double helix shape of DNA.

The painting was sold to a private collector for £2.65 million on Tuesday evening at London auction house Christies.

Nick Orchard, head of Modern British Art at Christies, said the composition of the painting 'just ticks all the boxes'.

'The figures are a lot more differentiated than in other works, although it is not untypical from Lowry's work from this period, but the figures add the emotion to the painting.

THE 'MATCHSTICK MEN PAINTER'

LS Lowry (1887-1976) lived in Greater Manchester, and became famous for painting industrial landscapes.

He is known for his distinctive 'matchstick men' style, which depicts figures with thin bodies and large heads.

Lowry claimed to be a 'simple man' who could not understand modern art, but is now treated as a major artist, with much of his work exhibited in a purpose-built museum in Salford.

He was a notoriously private man who hated publicity, and was secretive about his job at the Pall Mall Property Company, where he worked for decades to support his artistic career.
