The Scottish Colourists: 1900 - 1930
F.C.B. Cadell, J.D. Fergusson, G.L. Hunter and S.J. Peploe are now amongst the most admired of early twentieth-century British artists. During their lifetime the Colourists developed an international reputation, exhibiting in Paris, London and New York as well as Scotland.
Since their deaths they have often been overlooked in histories of British art. Published as the companion book to a 1999 exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland, this book features essays describing the artists' lives and their involvement with the avant-garde in Paris in the early years of the twentieth century. This book is richly illustrated with over 100 of the Colourists' most stylish and inventive paintings and is highly recommended as a gift.
