A current exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, is bringing together an almost forgotten generation of artists. ‘True to Life’ explores the realist tradition in British art between the two World Wars: focussing on the scrupulously detailed realist painting of the time. When abstract art became fashionable after the Second World War, many of these artists became side-lined and largely forgotten. The exhibition includes 80 paintings, of astonishing technical accomplishment and stunning beauty, by more than fifty artists, and provides a unique chance to rediscover a remarkable, but little known period in British Art.
