Tucker, James Walker, 1898-1972; Hiking

‘This exhibition invites us to look at art that has long been scorned or ignored’ (Frances Spalding): on the Post this week, paintings newly on display in Edinburgh. They are in an exhibition (which is on until the end of October) called True to Life – British Realist Painting in the 1920s and ’30s. And there is an important parallel between these kind of pictures and the kind of novels we  publish. So it is no coincidence that several of the paintings now in Edinburgh appear on our website as visual illustrations of the books, for example James Walker Tucker’s Hiking illustrates Diana Athill’s short stories.
