This groundbreaking book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham, focuses on an overlooked strand in British painting of the 1930s. It reveals a small group of figure painters, situated stylistically between the avant-garde abstractionists and the Edwardian traditions of belle peinture, who were looking for ways of being both modern and in touch with a wide public. The artists include Stanley Spencer and William Roberts, Maxwell Armfield, Laura Knight and Harold Williamson.
