This is a post from the weareoca.com archive. Information contained within it may now be out of date.
We will be visiting a fabulously painterly painter in Edinburgh on 17 April. This exhibition will be particularly relevant to any OCA student studying painting. Part of the Scottish Colourist series, SJ Peploe is on at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Peploe painted beautifully composed still lives and stunning landscapes of France and Scotland.
The exhibition will bring together more than 100 of Peploe’s most significant paintings from public and private collections around the world, including highlights such as the 1905 masterpiece, The Coffee Pot, early 1920s work, Red and Pink Roses,Oranges and Fan.
Samuel John Peploe (1871-1935) was the most successful of the four artists popularly known as The Scottish Colourists, along with FCB Cadell, JD Fergusson and GL Hunter. Peploe is considered by many to be the leader of the group and it was his friendship with the others which bound the four together. Born in Edinburgh, Peploe lived in the Scottish capital all his life, apart from two years spent in Paris between 1910 and 1912.
