Edwin G Lucas (1911-1990) was born and spent his whole life in Edinburgh.
A prolific painter, he was heavily influenced by the surrealists, a style he blended with his own individual methods to produce colourful and fascinating paintings.
The book reveals the little-known story of the Scottish artist who stopped painting for almost thirty years while his family were growing up. A lovely insight into a highly talented artist.
