THE SCOTTISH COLOURISTS

Thursday 22 February 2018

J S Peploe (1871-1935) Still Life with Bottle c 1921

The work of S.J. Peploe and J.D. Fergusson was seen in Edinburgh and London in the decade leading up to World War 1, but Hunter and Cadell were less well known. 

 

The Scottish Colourists were bold pioneers in the field of rich colour and exuberant brushwork.

 

The strong light and bright colour they discovered in France was easily harnessed to their favourite places, people, interiors and still life in Scotland. 

Francis Cadell 1883-1937
