National Galleries of Scotland explore British realism, The Hepworth focuses on the painter’s works on India, and boxing as art comes to Waddington Custot
British art has a penchant for painting reality. From John Constable to Lucian Freud, you could even claim that it’s the national genius. This exhibition explores a much less well-known generation of meticulous picture makers who portrayed British life between the world wars. It includes the spookily precise portraits of Meredith Frampton, whose brittle, icy pictures of high life slip over into a kind of society surrealism. Other artists include Laura Knight, Winifred Knights and James Cowie.
At Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, 1-29 October
