The Scottish Colourists

FCB Cadell, JD Fergusson, George Leslie Hunter, SJ Peploe

04 Aug 2016 - 03 Sep 2016

Today, for many, Peploe, Fergusson, Hunter and Cadell, known as The Scottish Colourists, represent the greatest achievements in Scottish painting. Their work can be properly seen in a European context and they were the first Scottish painters to see themselves as modern. At no time in the last one hundred and twenty years would an enquiry after the work of one or all the Colourists have been fruitless at the front desk at The Scottish Gallery. The Gallery was home to the ideas, exhibitions and the lives of The Scottish Colourists. This exhibition will feature some of the finest examples of Scottish Colourists works to be on the market in recent years.
