A CELEBRATION OF S.J. PEPLOE AT 150:
AN ONLINE TALK BY ALICE STRANG

LIVE ONLINE TALK | 2ND DECEMBER 2021 | LIVESTREAMED HERE FROM 7PM


 

Join Senior Specialist, Alice Strang, for an online talk celebrating the Scottish Colourist Samuel John Peploe, on 2nd December at 7pm.
It will be inspired by the special focus on Peploe’s work in our forthcoming Scottish Paintings & Sculpture auction on 9th December 2021, in this year of the 150th anniversary of his birth.
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.
