About Edwin G. Lucas: An Individual Eye
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Edwin G. Lucas (1911-1990) was one of the most unique Scottish painters of the 20th century. Born and raised in Edinburgh, he channelled the influence of Surrealism in his work, cultivating an original and highly imaginative style of painting during the 1940s and 50s that set him apart from his contemporaries. Today, however, he is virtually unknown.
Edwin G. Lucas: An Individual Eye is the first major exhibition to focus on this unusual and enigmatic artist. Featuring over sixty artworks from public and private collections, including loans from the artist’s estate and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, it traces the untold story of Lucas’s life and career.
This exhibition will be accompanied by the forthcoming illustrated catalogue Edwin G. Lucas: An Individual Eye, written by Helen E. Scott and due to be published by Sansom & Co in August 2018.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edwin G. Lucas: An Individual Eye are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
