Opening on 4th
August at City Art Centre, 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.
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.
These 8 paintings on display in the City Art Centre exhibition will be available for sale from 4 August via The Fine Art Society in Edinburgh.
