This handsomely illustrated book perceptively and revealingly examines the interwar movement towards 'static' naturalism in painting – confounding the received wisdom that good, exploratory British painting of this period had necessarily to be radically abstract. Though some British Realist painting shown here does atrophy into some kind of stuffy pastoral idyll, there aremany wonderfully original paintings by artists such as James Cowie, Meredith Frampton, David Jagger, John Luke and Glyn Philpot, mesmerising works ofquite surreal stillness and disquietingly hallucinatory intensity offocus.
