This is a superb, in depth, work which reveals the long forgotten history of the East London Group; a very popular and innovative artistic movement from the late twenties and early thirties. Well worth buying!!

An important and very detailed new book. It rediscovers the artists and works of this very successful group, which existed for over ten years from the late 1920s.

This is a meticulously researched and engagingly written history of a group of working-class realist painters from the East End of London who achieved phenomenal critical acclaim in the 1930s. David Buckman's lively text is accompanied by copious illustrations to provide a fascinating account of a unique and long-neglected aspect of British art history. Highly recommended.

Currently (Mar 2015) out of print, but up for a 2nd Edition later in the year. This is a fantastic book about a little-known school of English artists from what I think of as "my old borough". As talented as you could wish for, they were realists in the same sense as the famous US artist Hopper, with the same kind of luminosity. You will be amazed at the street scenes, interiors and countryside landscapes.
