A Legacy in Colour | The Peploe Family
7 March – 6 April 2024

There are many examples of artist dynasties in the history of art. In earlier times art was sometimes a family business, the virtues and attributes of one generation continued in the next. The genetic component (however uncertain) would sometimes out and other nurturing aspects of an artist’s development perhaps made a career more likely in the next generation. And it is not unusual for artists to marry artists, refreshing the gene pool, as is the case with the Peploes.

A Legacy in Colour invites viewers to witness the Peploe family’s artistic legacy, appreciating the diversity within their shared commitment to artistic expression. From the vibrant palettes of Samuel John Peploe to the direct, physical work of Denis Peploe, this exhibition celebrates the enduring impact of a family that significantly shaped the art scene in Scotland and beyond.
