Join Senior Specialist, Alice Strang for the free, online talk A Celebration of S. J. Peploe at 150 at 7pm on Thursday 02 December 2021 inspired by the special focus on the Scottish Colourist in our Scottish Paintings & Sculpture auction on 09 December, which marks the 150th anniversary of the year of Peploe’s birth.
Alice has recently joined us as a Senior Specialist in Modern and Contemporary Art. She was previously a Senior Curator at the National Galleries of Scotland, where she curated the 2012 Peploe retrospective exhibition.
The talk will begin by introducing Peploe as one of Scotland’s most important twentieth-century artists. It will then consider his position amongst his fellow Scottish Colourists, F. C. B. Cadell, J. D. Fergusson and G. L. Hunter. In conclusion, Alice will place Peploe within a wider context of modern Scottish art, including the younger painters Anne Redpath and Joan Eardley.
