For twenty years, at the end of the nineteenth century, a group of painters based in Glasgow, but working all over Scotland, and also on the Mediterranean coast and in the middle east, established an international reputation for realism, naturalism, and plein-air landscape painting. Led by James Guthrie, John Lowery, Arthur Melville and E.A. Hornel, they were to find fame and fortune with their naturalistic subject matter and their strong, clean, fresh colours. First published twenty years ago this prize winning book has long been the standard account of their work, and is now revised and redesigned with the majority of the illustrations now in colour. Winner of the Scottish Arts Council Book Award 'A vital addition to the bookshelf' Spectator 'Well written, lusciously illustrated and strongly recommended' Sunday Telegraph

A revised edition of the book, updated with new information, and beautifully redesigned, with many of the prints, previously in black and white, now in colour. Frances Lincoln, the new publishers, have lovingly redesigned the pages and there are exquisite new prints. Apart from anything else, the book is a beautiful object in itself. ( Glasgow Herald)
This is a beautiful book, one that any art lover will pore over lovingly, and it clarifies the history of an art movement that has long been unfairly sidelined. Whether you choose to dip in and out of the writing and linger, enraptured, over the lush plates, or immerse yourself in full by reading all of the enthralling history of these young men who sought to change the stifling art world of the late nineteenth century, it is an essential buy for anyone who values the visual arts.
