Edwin G Lucas: An Individual Eye

City Art Centre, Edinburgh, 4th August to

10th February 2019

In 2013 the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art acquired five paintings by the almost unknown Scottish painter Edwin G Lucas. These revealed a distinctive sensibility, responsible for a body of highly inventive figurative paintings. Five years on, the City Art Centre is giving Lucas a full retrospective. Born in Leith in 1911, Lucas was a self-taught painter, who worked as a civil servant. In the mid 1930s, he met modernist painter Wilhelmina Barns- Graham, then a student, and came under the sway of surrealism, which stimulated over a decade of experimentation.

Artists’ Film International: Munem Wasif, Mikołaj Sobczak, Jibade-Khalil Huffman Whitechapel Gallery, 31st July to 30th September

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s August issue: Zoe Williams argues that the first thing we need to do if we are to remain in the EU is to tackle the reasons why so many wanted out—namely pay and conditions at home and the impact of unfettered capitalism. Prospect’s Alex Dean and Tom Clark interviewed former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg who says the liberal centre should keep the faith—there is another way to work closely with Europe, but the immigration question is central to finding that solution. Meanwhile, a group of writers including Wolfgang Münchau, Shashank Joshi and Owen Hatherley explain some of the pitfalls, prizes and things you hadn’t thought about when it comes to the UK’s relationship with the EU. Elsewhere in the issue: Former UK diplomat Tom Fletcher profiles the out-going UN human rights chief who is causing a stir by saying the things nobody else would dare. Steve Bloomfield asks what happened to Seymour Hersh—how did the legendary journalist come to echo the thoughts and ideas of Bashar al-Assad; and Phil Ball examines the crisis of male infertility asking: where has all the sperm gone?
