The Scottish Colourists represent a key moment in the story of Scottish art. The term is applied to a grouping of four artists; S.J. Peploe, F.C.B. Cadell, G.L. Hunter and J.D. Fergusson. Although individually distinct, and never all working together in their lifetimes, they had a shared affinity that has united them posthumously. In the very early 20th century each artist spent time in France, and was greatly inspired by the current generation of French artists. They took this inspiration and transformed it into a new approach in Scottish painting, characterised by bold colour and dynamic brushwork. These works have become some of the most popular examples of Scottish painting in recent decades.

This exhibition will bring together paintings by all four artists, presenting select examples by each, to highlight their particular skills and interests. All four artist’s experimented with still-life subjects, so they will be a key focus of the exhibition, as well as selected portraits, and views of their favoured locations; Paris, Venice, and the Scottish isle of Iona. The focus of this exhibition is artworks from private collections, making it a wonderful opportunity to view museum-quality, yet rarely exhibited, paintings.

Lyon & Turnbull would like to thank the many clients and friends who have provided the wonderful paintings for this exhibition.
