Edwin G Lucas: An Individual Eye

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 Lucas Inline

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.

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.
