James Knox | The Scottish Colourists
Today, the four artists known as the Scottish Colourist - SJ Peploe, JD Fergusson, FCB Cadell and Leslie Hunter - are acknowledged as one of the most talented, experimental and distinctive groups in 20th-century British art. This book tells the story of their lives and their art; from the birth of the movement, led by Peploe and Fergusson, in the artistic ferment of Paris before the First World War, to its coming of age in the 1920s when the four artists first showed as a quartet, winning renown as masters of luminous colour and contemporary design. the story concludes with their glorious late maturity as landscape painters, entranced by the distinctive beauty of Scottish light.
