Event description

Description

Edwin G. Lucas (1911-1990) was one of the most unique Scottish painters of the 20th century. A self-taught artist, who channelled the influence of Surrealism, he cultivated an original and highly imaginative style of painting during the 1940s and 50s that set him apart from his contemporaries. Today, however, his work is virtually unknown. Timed to coincide with a major new exhibition at the City Art Centre, this lecture traces the story of Lucas’ life and career, exploring his experimental paintings and re-establishing his reputation. Dr Helen Scott is Curator of Fine Art at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh.

All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
